BYOU Magazine’s Holiday 2014 cover star, Olivia Holt, is making holiday magic on stage at the Pasadena Playhouse in Los Angeles. Olivia plays the title character in SLEEPING BEAUTY and Her Winter Knight. Olivia stars alongside Lucy Lawless of Xena: Warrior Princess, Garrett Clayton of Disney’s Teen Beach Movie, Patrick Cassidy of Broadway’s 42nd Street, David Engel of Broadway’s La Cage Aux Folles, Tamyra Gray of American Idol and Ben Giroux of CW’s Hart of Dixie.
An updated version of the classic Grimm fairytale, in the style of a traditional British family Panto, SLEEPING BEAUTY and Her Winter Knight is a singing and soaring winter adventure that features family-friendly magic, with a comedic twist, dancing (with “So You Think You Can Dance” alumni), interaction with the audience and contemporary music from Jessie J’s “Domino” to John Legend’s “All Of Me,” Pharrell Williams “Happy” to Survivor’s “Eye of The Tiger” and more.
The show is getting great reviews. LA Weekly called it “A rip roaring time…A fresh take on a familiar tale-and valuable training in audience participation.” BroadwayWorld said it’s “Enormous fun with a dynamite cast…Sleeping Beauty is a really delectable Christmas confection!”
SLEEPING BEAUTY is at the Pasadena Playhouse until January 4, 2015. Get more info and tickets here.
