What a cold, windy and rainy weather we have for a couple of days now! To be honest it is not fun to go out and see the Christmas Market or do shoppings... I truly enjoy to be in a cozy, warm room and read a book/watch a movie or enjoy a night in a theathre. This time let's see what we can see at the Edinburgh's Theathre.
The Sleeping Beauty - Edinburgh Morningside, People's Theathre
For many years, King Rumbletum and his wife, Queen Gigglebelly, longed for a child. When at long last Princess Beauty was born, they were overjoyed and quickly arranged a Christening party. People were invited from all over the kingdom, including three fairy godmothers - Smartie, Wispa and Bounty - who gave the new Princess three magic gifts. There was great rejoicing and everyone was happy - except the evil witch, Olga Pong. She had not been invited and, in a jealous rage, decided to put an evil spell on the Princess which would take effect on her 18th Birthday........
