A king who snores, a dragon who roars, and a prince whom love misses until a princess he kisses. When all is said and done, SLEEPING BEAUTY is a whole lot of family fun! The show is filled with magnificent songs, magical spells, evil witches, handsome knights, and the most beautiful princess in the land!
