Description:

       Sleeping Beauty is one of the most well-known tales of all time. But what exactly was happening in the mind of our fair maiden while she was sleeping? This production looks at the classic Sleeping Beauty story through a dark filter as the audience is taken through the twisted and bizarre dream world of the lead female character. Through a wide variety of classic Hollywood horror orchestral effects/samples/soundscapes, this combination of music and sounds will be lockstep with a developing story line that will keep not just the judges, but the entire audience enchanted by this unique show. Visual and color guard staff will have an incredible vehicle for creative expression with this production which can only help the overall effectiveness of this program.
