The King and Queen of Never Nod have a new baby, Princess Briar Rose.  The witch Evilina, who lives with a giant spider, sets a terrible curse on the poor young princess. Sixteen years later, it's up to Prince Alexander to come to Briar-Rose's rescue and the court's too...  for they are all asleep! The Prince must fight a Wall of Thorns, a False Princess and, most frightening of all, the exalted Dark Knight! The zany, lovable characters and the score are as enchanting as Briar-Rose in this family favorite. Produced with permission from Pioneer Drama Service.
