English Media release

The classical story of Sleeping Beauty is re-imagined with the UFS drama department’s production Die Slapende Skoonheid. It tells the tale of Princess Flora and her two fairy nannies Naas and Florinda, who lives in Lappiesdorp, where they have their hands full with the wicked witch Insomnia. She wants to take over the kingdom and become queen herself! In true fairy tale style the charming Prince Gawie rises to the occasion and saves Flora from Insomnia’s evil clutches.

Set against a South African context, the play allows for a cultural experience with which every member of the audience will be able to identify. Die Slapende Skoonheid takes a fresh look at this age old tale and promises wholesome fun for the whole family.
