A sleeping princess, fire-breathing dragon and a hapless magician entertain audiences young and old alike in Sutter Street Theatre’s production of “Sleeping Beauty.”

The emphasis is on comedy in this musical adaptation of the classic fairy tale. A delightful group of characters are assembled that theatergoers will find as enchanting as the magic in the story itself. There’s Chester the Jester, Typsy the Gypsy and the Royal Magician who is so inept he transforms himself into a frog. And there’s the evil Thornberry, who puts the curse on Princess Elaine (the “sleeping beauty”), and the brave Prince Dauntless who battles the fire-breathing dragon to break the magic spell. Add 10 tuneful songs to this zany story and the entire family will be in for a delightful theatre experience.

This production of “Sleeping Beauty” is based on the book  and lyrics by R. Eugene Jackson with music by Patsy Pollarf. Connie Mockenhaupt and Mike Jimena co-direct the show.

Showtimes for “Sleeping Beauty” are 1 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through Nov. 24 at Sutter Street Theatre 717 Sutter St. in Folsom. Tickets are $17 general, $15 seniors and $13 children 12 and younger. There is a discount of $2 per ticket for groups of 10 or more. Purchase tickets by calling (916) 353-1001 (required for group orders) or visiting SutterStreetTheatre.com.
