SYNOPSIS: On their way to sell rutabagas at the market, Stef and Harley, hearing ominous growling, run inside a cottage in the Enchanted Woods. The cottage’s owners, Evalinda and Dorabelle, insist on a story in exchange for allowing them to stay. Stef starts the story of the Sleeping Beauty, when the Princess Sleeping Beauty herself enters and makes the story come alive. Things go from weird to worse when 3 angry bears, hot on the heels of Goldilocks, run into the cottage. Then Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs, outrunning the Evil Queen, and a combat ready Hansel and Gretel join the group. A spell puts Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, and Goldilocks, as well as the two Princes who arrive to rescue them, into a deep enchanted sleep. In a harrowing climax, the Evil Queen arrives to wall up the sleepers and the only person who can save the day is Fifi the Blue Haired Fairy, who has unfortunately lost all her magic powers. How she makes it end happily lends an original and funny ending to this fractured fairy tale.
