Enchanted Sleeping Beauty: The Legend of Briar-Rose


Now Playing

Enchanted Sleeping Beauty: The Legend of Briar-Rose is a delightful musical retelling of the classic tale filled with wonder, danger and the power of love!

The King and Queen of Never Nod celebrate the birth of their precious new baby, Princess Briar-Rose, with a joyous celebration.  During the festivities, the wicked witch Evilina, who lives with a giant spider and a snarky cat, sets a terrible curse upon the young princess. Sixteen years later, it is up to valiant Prince Alexander to come to Briar-Rose’s rescue and the royal court too – for they are all sound asleep! The prince braves the treacherous trials set forth by Evilina to rescue the sleeping princess with the kiss of True Love. He must fight a giant Wall of Thorns, a False princess, and most frightening of all, the exalted Dark Knight!

The zany, lovable characters, the musical score, special effects and the fabulous costumes are as enchanting as Briar-Rose in this magical musical fable for all ages.
