Marionetas de la Esquina of Mexico
Marionetas de la Esquina, a puppet theater company from Mexico, has been entertaining children and adults alike since 1975. Its Sleeping Beauty Dreams, written by award-winning playwright Amaranta Leyva, reimagines the famous princess as an overprotected daughter looking for a way to break free of her castle walls in order to search for true love…and her true self. A contemporary look at this classic tale, Marionetas de la Esquina's humorous storytelling and whimsical puppetry awake this sleeping princess as never before. For age 5 and up.
