This January at NWCT, get ready to hear the story of Sleeping Beauty like you’ve never heard it told before…
The Tale of Sleeping Beauty is one of the world’s oldest and most revered fairy tales… and it has just been hijacked by a company of crazy bird puppets, The Starlings. With a brand new script and original music written by Portland’s own The Bylines, The Starlings storm the stage for NWCT’s latest original adaptation.
Not only will The Starlings appear onstage to tell the story, but also in, around, and all over NWCT. Sprung from the mind of (and hand-crafted by) NWCT Associate Artistic Director, designer, fabricator and actor John Ellingson, The Starlings will not nest, er… rest… until their version of the story is told. Oh, and you just might catch them running lights and sound, taking tickets, ushering, or selling concessions. Get ready to truly see the story of Sleeping Beauty unfold… from a bird’s eye view.
