The King and Queen celebrate the birth of their beautiful daughter Aurora with a humungous party. A crotchety old witch rages because she hasn’t been invited and puts a curse on the lovely newborn, dooming her to perish on her 18th birthday. Thankfully, the good fairy uses her magic to ensure Aurora’s life will be spared. But, as with most fairytales, there’s a catch.
Performed 3-23-14 at Bank Street Bookstore. Puppeteers: Rebecca Migdal and Chelsea Camp. Accompanist: Andy Laties. Camera by Nere Kapiteni.
