Book and lyrics by Joe Grenzeback. Music by Haakon Bergh.
Cast: 15m., 13w. (some doubling.) Sleeping Beauty, the way the Brothers Grimm wrote it, neglected to explain the how—how, for example, a satisfactory prince managed to arrive at just the right time. Sing Ho for a Prince attempts to remedy this oversight by telling the story from the viewpoint of Treakle, the fairy who promised to watch over the Princess. This musical fairy tale is scored for two pianos; however, the play may be produced with or without music. Producers whose box office requires a well-known title may publicize it as Sleeping Beauty. One ext. set. Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes.
