The 14th Annual Puppetry Festival will begin Saturday, February 1 with a 10:30 a.m. performance of “Sleeping Beauty” by Tanglewood Marionettes. The story begins in King Felix’s great hall with the celebration of Princess Aurora’s birth. The party goes awry when the wicked witch arrives and curses Princess Aurora. Will the curse come true? Will someone with a “true heart” appear? In this retelling, a painted story book opens to reveal each scene. Beautifully hand-crafted puppets are brought to life by a master puppeteer as the dramatic events unfold. “We are excited to kick off this year’s Puppetry Festival with Tanglewood Marionettes. They have been fan favorites for years,” said Ms. Skilton.
