The King takes Jamie – the would be hero – on a journey along with the audience designed to help everyone release fear and make choices based on love and courage. Learn more
All of the content about courage and confidence is great for both boys and girls, to bring relevance & inspiration to a story traditionally about re-awakening the feminine, the princess, within the world.Learn more
This one has proved incredibly popular in theatre seasons, always a sell-out. Schools always love the message and humour too.
And for a reason we can’t quite understand, older students at schools love it too – whether it’s for Jamie, our would be hero, the inspirational King or the hilarious characters of Andy, Veg and Mite. Audiences love our modernisation of the classic princess role with our strong and independent leading lady ripping up the book on what a princess should be. Learn more
About the Show
Even in times of seeming impossible circumstances, it’s important to remember that destiny must be served, and we must follow our path. Not only does the huntsman turned hero learn this lesson, but so does the audience as we encourage all to feel the confidence in knowing your purpose and knowing you are the voice that creates your reality.
Sleeping Beauty stories have also always been about reawakening the feminine, as Rose is brought to life by the kiss of her true love, but our show takes a much more modern take on this story to show the strength of Rose and the power of making the right choices.
Alpha’s version is also just really, really silly! Hilarious for both children and adults and a whole lot of fun! Even the older boys will love this one!
Values Theme: FEAR and CHOICES
Outcome: To bring an understanding of the true cause of why we might choose to make negative choices that affect ourselves and others.
Updating the gender stereotypes into the 21st century, whilst honouring and inspiring new ideals and archetypes. Examples of overcoming peer pressure are subtly incorporated through the key character conflicts where characters choose the ‘good guys’, as a new alternative rather than their peers and the past.
Positive role-models & values are also strong themes; a powerful ‘confidence’ theme is also integrated, as boys (and girls) get new learnings in how to create confidence, through the King’s closed eye process about ‘choices’. Download Curriculum Documents
