Saturday, January 17 @ 2 pm



"David's charismatic personality and presence, his facial expressions and body language make the show a hit. The young audience was spellbound by his storytelling."

The Examiner
Master storyteller David Gonzalez returns to the Forbes Center with a modern twist on the classic tale of Sleeping Beauty. This new rhyming version with live music inspired by Bach’s Goldberg Variations, image projections and exquisite lighting draws audiences of all ages into a magical multimedia world in which a more independent princess is awakened by true love’s kiss … or not! Gonzalez is the recipient of the 2011 International Performing Arts for Youth “Lifetime Achievement Award for Sustained Excellence.”

A Forbes Family Fun event.
