Screaming Beauty

Screaming Beauty takes audiences into the Kingdom of Dreams, where the Sandman is celebrating the Name-Day of his daughter, Princess Aurora.  The Princess will grow up to be a dream-weaver, so the fairies of the kingdom gift her with the ingredients of sweet dreams: imagination, mystery, nonsense, and flight.

 

The story darkens with the arrival of an uninvited guest: Mara, Lady of Nightmares.  The Lady places a curse on Aurora, decreeing that on her sixteenth birthday, the Princess will fall asleep and be trapped forever in the Realm of Nightmares.

 

Screaming Beauty follows Aurora from the heights of colorful fantasy to the depths of shadowy terror to tell a story about light, dark, and the power of confronting fear.
