And it’s fabulous! Every year on the day after Thanksgiving, part of my families tradition is that we head downtown to the Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati (ETC). This year the play was Sleeping Beauty, and it was performed as a musical.
As always, the costumes were just as incredible as the performers who wore them. We were enchanted with the Fairies: Marigold, Daisy and Lilac. Our absolute favorite character was Wisteria played by the talented Deb Girdler. Year and year, and performance after performance, she steals the show!
ETC’s take on Sleeping Beauty was a little bit different from the traditional story. They always put their own comical twist to the plays they perform. I couldn’t stop myself from smiling through the performance. Once again, this is a must see performance for both young and old.
Tickets for Sleeping Beauty range from $28 to $44 for adults and $18 for children. If you are on a budget, you might want to try to take advantage of ETC’s half-price rush tickets which are offered for all performances, and available two hours prior to show time.
