The students of Shearer Elementary are proud to present a musical rendition of the timeless classic, Sleeping Beauty. Join us as the entire kingdom celebrates the long-awaited birth of the Princess Aurora. Everyone is thrilled to meet the new baby, except the evil sorceress, Maleficient, who leaves a curse on the child. Can the good fairies and Prince Phillip save Aurora from Maleficent’s dark magic?

Disney’s Sleeping Beauty KIDS is Shearer Elementary School’s third annual musical production, following Annie KIDS in 2014 and Disney’s The AristoCats KIDS in 2015. All cast members in this production completed a full theatrical-style audition process, complete with callbacks and cuts. Even though this is an elementary school production, the kids do all of the acting, singing, and dancing themselves – there are no prerecorded vocal tracks! The show is fully costumed, lighted, and choreographed. The cast is comprised entirely of Shearer Elementary School kindergarten through 4th grade students. Some have participated in full-length musicals already while for others, this will be their first ever stage experience in front of a live audience!

This year is particularly special because the show will be at Leeds Center for the Arts in downtown Winchester. Leeds has graciously donated the use of their building for free.

The show is directed by Collin Berner, who has been the general music teacher at Shearer Elementary School for the last 10 years. Collin has been very active in the Winchester community theatre scene since directing Annie KIDS and Disney’s The AristoCats KIDS with Shearer. He has also directed music for two Leeds productions, Revolting Children (2014) and Once Upon A Mattress (2015), one Winchester Players production, When You Wish (2015), and is directing music for Baker Intermediate School’s upcoming production of Disney’s Mulan Jr. in April. He will also be playing steel pan for GRC High School’s upcoming Disney’s The Little Mermaid.
