This Sleeping Beauty should never have been awakened!

1.0
This was a rather lame retelling of the Sleeping Beauty tale, depicting the delicate princess as a feminist seeking to decry and deny her beauty and her regal lot in life. Some classics are better left as they were originally written - and in this instance, both the Brothers Grimm are undoubtedly rollin' in their graves!

The production was fraught with both bad acting and overacting; a cheesy set; and gaudy, "got 'em in a thrift store" costumes.

Overall, quite embarrassing! Beth Chessler is capable of much better work as a director.

Abracadabra Children's Theatre at Onstage Atlanta was FAR BETTER when Chip Coffey was writing, producing and directing the shows! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
