Not only will children and adults get to see the ballerinas take the stage Saturday to perform Sleeping Beauty, but youngsters even will have a chance to take a Fairy Ballerina Class with Princess Aurora.

It's all part of the Storybook Weekend at The Grand.

Wausau Dance Theatre's annual event combines the enjoyment of dance performance with interactive events in The Enchanted Kingdom, the decorated Great Hall. There are princess-inspired crafts before the show at 12:30 p.m. Free dance lessons are from 12:45 p.m. to 1 p.m. for ages 3 and 4 and 1 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. for ages 5 to 8.

The Sleeping Beauty ballet follows the fairy tale about a princess who pricks her finger and is cursed to sleep until her prince can fall in love with her and break the spell. This year's featured guest dancer is international dance star Carlos Lopez as the Prince.

Showtimes are 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults and $16 for students and seniors. Call The Grand to reserve seats at 715-842-0988.
