Happily ever after: The Florida Chautauqua Theatre presents "Sleeping Beauty"

Published: Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at 04:17 PM.

Playing the role of Maleficent, the antagonist of the film, is Florida Chautauqua Theatre veteran Mary Beth Majors, who was cast as the evil fairy godmother for the first time about seven years ago.

"I love that role," Campbell-Work said. "If I could play Maleficent, I would."

Natalie Allred, another veteran, will play the role of Sleeping Beauty. Allred was also cast in last year's "The Little Mermaid," playing Scuttle.

"She worked her way up from a seagull to a princess," said Campbell-Work with a laugh.

Having former students, or veterans as Campbell-Work calls them, reprise a role or volunteer means a lot.

"We often invite people back," she said. "It's hard to cast a whole show with young children."

Working with young minds is Campbell-Work's favorite part of being involved with the Florida Chautauqua Theatre. The non-profit organization is dedicated to providing children with a fun, cultural outlet.
