'Sleeping Beauty'

MAPA dreams up its Disney Kids tale

Disney does fairy tales better than anyone else. There might be an exception here and there, but I always envision a Disney image when I think classic fairy tales. "Sleeping Beauty" was in many ways the last true Walt Disney movie. It was the last project he oversaw and the last Disney film that was hand inked and hand drawn by a massive team of artists one cell at a time. Local children's theater production companies can affordably purchase stage versions complete with recorded music tracks right from this source. Theater in a box, stamped with the Disney trademark. That 1959 Disney version was based on the tale, "La Belle au bois Dormant," by Charles Perrault with a musical score and songs adapted from the 1890 ballet by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
