"'Beauty' of a play at PSF…charming, gorgeously costumed and choreographed – a beautiful interpretation of the classic story."

"Enchanting Emiley Kiser as Rosalind (Sleeping Beauty) couldn't have been more perfectly cast in the title role. She captivated her young audience with her description of the perfect prince for her."

"The set design by Bob Phillips perfectly captures the look of a little kingdom while Amy E. Best's costumes create the aura of royalty, the fun of fairies and princes and makes the evil fairy look the part."

"This enchanting re-telling of the fairy tale we all know keeps the attention of boys, girls and grownups alike, through humor and fabulous talents."

"A little friend, who came with me – a true BOY and race car lover – and saw his very first stage show. He stated he loved it (especially TwinkleToes) and "can't wait to go to another play!"

"Shouldn't be missed especially for the pre-school through elementary crowd!"

The Morning Call

"Little ones will have a blast."

"The classic fairy tale of "Sleeping Beauty" … is rife with hilarious references… There's plenty of campy fun for the kids."
