It's nearly time to close the book on "Sleeping Beauty." The fairy tale, presented by Orlando Shakespeare Theater, has been adapted by local actor Brandon Roberts.
The quirky retelling of the classic story of a brave prince, beautiful princess, magical kiss and really long nap ends July 28. The production is recommended for families with children age 4 and older.
Roberts' writing credits also include Orlando Shakespeare Theater's "Cinderella" and the Barter Theatre's "Little Red Riding Hood." Adults know him as artistic director of PB&J Theatre Factory, producers of "Sport," "Snack," "Sleigh," "Splash" and "Shhhh!"
There has been a cast change since the show's opening. It now features Jillian Gizzi, Joshua Roth and Morgan Price. Patrick Braillard, a show director at Universal Studios, is directing. Braillard has also directed at Mad Cow Theatre and acts with PB&J Theatre Factory.
