Description Grades K-4. Marionetas de la Esquina (Mexico). Hindered by her overprotective parents, a young girl seeks the freedom to search for true love—and her true self. Based loosely on a popular fairy tale, this inventive retelling by Mexican puppet company Marionetas de la Esquina demonstrates the power and promise of positive risk-taking. Written by award-winning playwright Amaranta Leyva, Sleeping Beauty Dreams uses dynamic puppet performance, humorous storytelling, and seamlessly integrated video projections to demonstrate the liberating potential of creativity.
