(Grades 3 – 6)
When a new princess is born to King Stefan & his wife, the entire kingdom rejoices. At a ceremony, three good fairies – Flora, Fauna & Merryweather – bestow gifts of magic on the child. But an evil sorceress named Maleficent shows up, and because of a rude remark by Merryweather, she places a curse on the princess – that she will die on her 16th birthday after touching a poisoned spinning wheel. Merryweather tries to undo the damage by casting a spell that will allow the princess – named Aurora – to awake from an ageless sleep with a kiss from her true love.
