Magenta Theater has a brand new children’s theater program – MAGENTOTS! But this is not kids performing! This is adult actors performing FOR kids.
The first production is a short comedy for young audiences, entitled Sleeping Beauty (with a twist). This beloved fairy tale has a traditional storyteller reading from his all too well-known book of Sleeping Beauty but is quickly usurped by the story’s feisty villain, the evil Griselda. With a magical spell, she literally turns back the hands of time to show what really happened to Sleeping Betty. Fortunately two good fairies and a magical frog help set the story straight, and make sure everyone lives happily ever after.
The play runs just under an hour so the youngsters won’t get too wiggly. Magentots productions will be best enjoyed by children aged 4-10 but all ages are welcome. Babies 9 months and under are admitted free of charge. All other attendees need a ticket.
