The Brothers Grimm tale Sleeping Beauty tells of Princess Rose, cursed by a scorned fairy to a hundred-year slumber. The only thing that can awaken her and restore peace to the kingdom is the heroic prince destined to be her true love and his trusty air horn. In Gamut Theatre Group’s production, however, the prince isn’t exactly heroic—he’s just doing the best he can. While bumbling, fumbling, and winning the audience’s heart, he stumbles upon the evildoings of Fairy Sourpuss and has to find the hero within himself. His task: to awaken not only the titular beauty, but also an entire town. His weapon of choice: modern wordplay and biting wit.
Gamut Theatre Group
From improv comedy to kids' shows to classic dramas, the Gamut Theatre Group offers a veritable feast of theater for kids and grown-ups alike. The Popcorn Hat Players, a team of actors and scriptwriters who produce original versions of classic children's stories with minimal scenery and absolutely no lengthy litigation scenes, complements the dramatic side, the Harrisburg Shakespeare Company, a troupe of seven artists who supplement the works of the Bard with similar works that are Shakespearean in content if not in authorship.
Meanwhile, the in-house comedy troupe T.M.I. specializes in long- and short-form, character-driven improv, and Stage Door productions have included radio theatre, staged readings, development of original works by local playwrights, providing theatrical experiences to the greater Harrisburg area.
