The G355 German Theatre Class at Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis presents Katharina Schlender’s "Dornröschen Oder Das Märchen vom Erwachen" (Sleeping Beauty or a Tale of Awakening), an adaptation from Grimm’s Fairy Tales (abridged).

It starts at 7 p.m. Wednesday (10 December) in CA 003 (also known as the basement of Cavanaugh Hall), 425 University Boulevard, Indianapolis.

The traditional tale of the princess awakened from her enchanted sleep by the kiss of a charming prince is dramatized in a new adaptation that reworks the familiar threads of the Grimm’s fairy tale into a comic drama of female rebellion.

Oh -- and, best of all, it's presented in the original German.
