    This musical retelling of “Sleeping Beauty” maintains the classic fairy tale but tells it with a modern touch of humor and style-our princess has spirit and a will of her own. Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, two magical sisters watched over a land, a land so very far away. The sisters, Branwen and Modron, vied for the life of an innocent child found in the woods, Briar Rose. As a kindness, Branwen gave the baby to the King and Queen. However, Modron vowed that if she couldn’t have the girl no one could. Before night’s end on her sixteenth birthday, Briar Rose will be doomed to prick her finger on a spinning wheel’s spindle and fall to her death. Branwen was able to grant the family a reprieve; instead of death, Briar Rose would merely fall into a hundred-year sleep, with only the touch of true love’s kiss able to break the spell. Knowing that much can happen in sixteen years, Branwen sent the child a companion, Gryff, a creature half man and half dragon. Despite Gryff’s diligence, Briar Rose fell prey to the hex, and only her friend, the hapless Prince Owain, could save her. Filled with trepidation, Owain embarked on the quest to conquer the Spider King and enchanted fairies. But does he have the courage to vanquish Modron herself?
