This Christmas, Tea Break Theatre will be turning a much loved story on its head. With an intriguing modern twist, Sleeping Beauty? will feature puppetry, original music and comedy.
Families will be able to watch this live and interactive Zoom adventure from the comfort of their sofas.
Everyone knows the story: in a faraway time and a faraway place, a beautiful Princess is asleep in a castle. But this time, it’s 2020 and that faraway tale is happening here and now. The Prince wants to save the Princess, so sets off on an adventure with his faithful dog, Puff. Can he save the Princess and defeat the evil villain, Dreaver, who is determined to turn your own dreams against you? And all in time for Christmas?
Families will be transported into a magical fairy tale world, while exploring the feelings of loneliness, community and isolation that have been heightened during the Covid-19 lockdowns.
This uplifting and enlightening tale will explore how being honest about our emotions and identity can help our mental wellbeing. Sleeping Beauty? hopes to help adults and children alike feel grounded and empowered, in what for many has felt like a chaotic and uncontrollable year.
The performers will engage with families directly in this live spectacle, while audiences remain on mute to enjoy this home adventure in their own individual way.
Ensuring theatre is accessible for all families this Christmas, Tea Break Theatre will be using a ‘pay what you can’ ticketing system, where low cost and free tickets are available for those who need them most.
