In this colorful retelling of the classic tale by Charles Perrault, unpredictable mischief erupts when a spunky princess and a stable boy mix with evil fairies, phobias and sleep deprivation. The comedic romp begins in Medieval Ireland where Sleeping Beauty encounter the Fairy Folk and deals with their delightfully funny blessings and curses. This fractured fairy tale will have audiences laughing and their toes tapping.
Fionnoula – An optimistic and spunky princess who, through a botched blessing from birth, suffers from “The Sleeping Beauty Sickness” – Narcolepsy; age 18, must have great comedic timing.
Fergus – A clumsy stable boy who dreams of wining the favor of his best friend, Fionnoula; the love interest of Princess Fionnoula, age 18-20, must have great comedic timing.
Lhiannan Shide – A beautiful, yet evil Fairy who delights in mischief and mayhem of the highest magnitude. She never passes up an opportunity to lay a curse or stir up trouble though she’s actually fairly harmless; age late 20s-30s, must have great comedic timing.
Gan Ceanach – Lhiannan’s evil colleague, the strong, silent type, a fairy in his own right, he and Lhiannan are like two peas in a pod, though he is the more rational one of the pair; age late 20s-30s, must have great comic timing.
Lob Lie-by-the-fire – A mythical house elf who has worked for the castle for years, both under-paid and under-appreciated he has turned to selling items on the black market; dry sense of humor and wit, may be played by either an adult or child of either gender.
The King – A kind and dithery kind of endearing husband, father, and ruler of his kingdom. He will do anything to keep his daughter safe, but also has a difficult time keeping the kingdom content as well; age 40-50.
