A Participation Play with script and lyrics by Moses Goldberg and music by Ewel Cornett, adapated from the Brothers Grimm. An American master of participation theatre has adapted this beloved Grimm Brothers tale, with its many levels of psychological truth, and presents it as a musical fantasy for audience ages 4 through 8. Cast: 6 to 10 . Two settings (simple rotating unit). Contemporary and fairy-tale costumes. A printed music score with simple vocals and instrumentation is available from the publisher. Approx. running time: 50 minutes.
A group of actors solicits help from the young audience to perform this well-known fairy tale with its rich characters including a wise Frog, a garrulous Bush, the lively Briar Rose, her well-meaning but testy Father, and, of course, the drama of the blessing of Briar Rose by the fairies of Earth, Wind, and Water and the Fairy of Fire's curse of a 100 year slumber before Briar Rose awakens to recognize "what she has never seen and live in joy." This is the archetypal story of timeless love and the virtues of patience.
