"Charming and richly imaginative... [Daisy] doesn't need a prince to rise and shine."
~ Laurel Graeber, New York Times
About the show:
Daisy Greene is a very cautious 16-year-old New Yorker... hey, you'd be cautious too if your parents had forgotten to invite Marisol-From-Down-The-Hall to your third birthday party and she'd cursed you to someday prick your finger and nap forever! But when Daisy's best friend Tim-From-Across-The-Way convinces Daisy to finally leave her house and plant trees in Central Park, Marisol's curse is realized and Daisy finds herself deeply asleep and lost in the center of a labyrinth of her own dreams. Can Daisy throw caution to the wind and risk it all to wake herself up?
Very loosely adapted from "Sleeping Beauty," Wake Up, Daisy! is a commission from Central Park's historic Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre, and the latest whimsical collaboration between Sam and Yo, Vikings! collaborator, Marcus Stevens. Featuring a cast of rod puppets and marionettes with ten-foot strings, a wholly original score and an errant unicorn, Wake Up, Daisy! is a jubilant celebration for the whole family!
