People’s Light, located at 39 Conestoga Road, Malvern, Pa., is presenting the World Premiere of Sleeping Beauty: A Musical Panto through Jan 15, 2017. Peter Pryor, Samantha Reading, and Lyricist Alex Bechtel have put a contemporary spin on this age-old fairy tale. Aurora (Ariana Sepúlveda) doesn’t know she is a princess and wants nothing more than exploring the stars. Her only human contemporary, Boy (Luke Bradt), is a free spirit. Can true love really be found at age 16 in modern times? The 12 member ensemble cast is high spirited and the energy they produce on stage and up and down the aisles is contagious. There is quite a bit of audience participation and the audience loves it! There are unusual twists: the royal family lives in a hovel near a swamp and the sun gets tired of shining because the moon has fallen out of the sky with a shooting star and there is no longer any night; True love’s kiss delivered to awaken Princess Aurora is perhaps the biggest surprise of all.
