It’s Princess Aurora’s sixteenth birthday, and three fairies — Flora, Fauna and Merryweather — must use their magic to save her from the spell of the evil sorceress, Maleficent! The fairies ensure that Aurora falls into a deep sleep that can only be ended with a kiss from her betrothed, Prince Phillip. To prevent Phillip from rescuing Aurora, Maleficent kidnaps and imprisons him. The good fairies are the last hope to free Phillip so that he can awaken Aurora.

This fresh adaptation of the well-known English tale combines characters and elements from several medieval texts and gives it all a modern twist. Robin Hood and his friends—the hulking barbarian Little John, the kindhearted Friar Tuck, the sharpshooting Scarlet, the jovial minstrel Alan-a-Dale, the retired soldier David of Duncaster and more—band together to save the poor people of Nottingham from unjust taxation and poverty at the hands of Prince John and his long-suffering yet cruel Sheriff. Two gypsy orphans, Maid Marion’s handmaiden and a mysterious stranger share a secret that could win the day!

If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

Once Upon a Matress

Once Upon a Mattress

August 9 & 10 at 7:00 pm

Hartford Stage

If you thought you knew the story of ‘The Princess and The Pea,’ you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans.

Breakdancing Shakespeare puts a modern twist on a classic Shakespearean play blending it with the electricity and youthful passion of modern hip hop. This summer’s production features A Midsummer Night’s Dream. As the name suggests, it is a perfect summer comedy — love, rivalry, challenges to authority, and amateur theatrics — all kissed with the fireworks of hip hop fairy magic.  Here four teens set off into the city, by night, on an adventure that will change their lives.
