A staged adaptation of Disney's Sleeping Beauty (Kids) will run at the Eagle Theatre, located at 208 Vine Street in Hammonton, at 7pm on July 27 and 28, and 3pm on July 29. A lighthearted children's production, which will be performed by the students of the Eagle Theatre's summer theatre camp, this show is the perfect fit for younger children.
Children attending the performance are encouraged to dress up as their favorite Prince or Princess, and treats will be given to all children who come in costume.
In coordination with the production, a coloring contest will take place in the week preceding the shows. Coloring sheets can be picked up at several locations in Downtown Hammonton: Casciano Coffee Bar & Sweetery, Simply Stationary, and the Eagle Theatre. The coloring sheets can be turned in during any of the upcoming performances of Sleeping Beauty (Kids), and one entry per show will be selected at random to receive a special prize.
Tickets for this family-friendly performance are $15 for adults and $13 for children and seniors, plus applicable fees. They can be purchased at TheEagleTheatre.com, or by calling (609) 704-5012.
Each year, the Eagle Theatre Summer Theatre Camp-For Kids offers children aged 9-14 an opportunity to learn about theatre from area professionals.

This upcoming production marks the culmination of their work together.
This year, the camp cast includes the following students: Hailie Citrone, Cheyanne DelGuercio, Savannah DelGuercio, Audrey Greuhn, Francesca LaRosa, Alyssa Matro, Sara Grace Pavesi, Julia Perna, Stephen Privitera, Ava Procaccini, Danica Rudnesky, Zachary Runfolo, Angelina Santanello, Ben Silvesti, Paige L. Souder, Julia Terry, Alexandra Rowe, Jacquelyn Richter, Hailee Traenkner, Julian Robin, Vienna Robib and Angelica Ortiz.
