Northwest Children’s Theater Presents Sleeping Beauty

August 12, 2018 - 02:00pm to 05:00pm

Northwest Children’s Theater presents an all-puppet version of Sleeping Beauty at Oregon Zoo

Puppet acting troupe the Starlings will visit the zoo this summer for 16 performances of this mixed-up, feather-filled fairy tale, courtesy of Northwest Children’s Theater.

The tale of Sleeping Beauty is one the world’s oldest and most revered fairy tales...and it has just been hijacked by a company of zany bird puppets. Making their Oregon Zoo debut, these feathered friends will stop at nothing in their quest to seize the spotlight and rewrite history.

This fast-paced and interactive adaptation tells the story of Rosa, a budding botanist who becomes cursed with endless sleep after pricking herself on an enchanted thorn. Filled with music, wit and charm, this Northwest Children’s Theater original production explores themes of empowerment, exploration and the power of storytelling.

Performances at 2 and 4 p.m. on select Sundays (see below) and run approximately 25 minutes. Arrive early or stay after the performance for a chance to interact directly with the award-winning Starlings puppet troupe!

Performance schedule: 

August 12 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.
August 19 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Free with zoo admission.
