Nominated: Best Original Work of Theater (2017, Big Easy Entertainment Awards)


A WORLD PREMIERE script (commissioned by Le Petit Theater Du Vieux Carre') by writer/director Jon Greene creates a wild take on the Grimm Tale. Presented in the classic British Music Hall Style of "The Pantomime," the play combines slapstick, audience participation, a  current moral compass focused on consent, raunchy innuendo, a prince and princess who reflected the Greater New Orleans Community, and - of course - a healthy mix of buffoonery. Full of wit and spectacle this gut-buster for all ages premiered during New Orleans' Carnival Season.


"Sleeping Beauty Brings Raucous Charm to Le Petit Just in Time for Carnival" (Nola.com review by Ted Mahne)

"Like any truly good children's theater, "Sleeping Beauty: An American Panto," is, first and foremost, simply good theater."
"Together, with a finely chosen cast, they keep the ball bouncing with jokes and sight gags coming at a relentless pace, from the cleverly conceived prologue to the curtain calls that virtually demand a second line."
"[I loved it] and so will anyone who remembers the thrill, the joy, the magic of that first experience of live theater."
