Once upon a time, there was princess who was named “Sleeping Beauty,” and at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, the Louisiana Tech University’s Department of Theatre will retell her story — “through magic and a little bit of hair product” — at the Howard Auditorium located in Louisiana Tech’s Howard Center for the Performing Arts.
Paul B. Crook, associate professor of theatre at Tech, is directing the retell and said the play is not the usual story.
“It’s really fun,” he said. “It’s not the Disney version of Sleeping Beauty, let’s be clear about that.”
