Suitable for All Groups
A fresh and fun-filled re-telling of the favourite story.
The Black Fairy doesn't receive an invitation to Mirabel's Christening, and in revenge casts a spell so that on her sixteenth birthday the Princess will prick her finger and die. Thanks to the White Fairy's intervention, she doesn't die but falls into a sleep from which she will be wakened by a prince's kiss. Nanny Bunion and Crumble are sent out to find the necessary prince, who unknown to them is already on his way. The less familiar ending is based on Perrault's version of the fairy tale in which the wicked Queen turns into an Ogre.
