5 Facts About the 3 Good Fairies

We’re going to have so much fun bringing the story of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty to magical new life on our stage this Winter in our Beginning Acting Classes! Let’s learn a couple of facts about some of the main characters in this classic Disney fairytale ahead of our Winter session.

  1. Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather are also known collectively as the “Three Good Fairies.” Flora wears red, Fauna wears green, and Merryweather dresses in shades of blue.
  2. As a group, the three good fairies have powerful magical abilities, channeled by their wands. They are able to do many magical things such as shrinking in size, flying, bringing inanimate objects to life, and putting people to sleep.
  3. The three good fairies were inspired by the seven fairies from the original “Sleeping Beauty” fairy tale by Charles Perrault.
  4. The three good fairies are also Princess Aurora’s guardians. They raise her in a woodcutter’s cottage in the forest to protect her from Maleficent.
  5. Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather don’t just appear in the original film or in our stage adaptation. Their characters can also be found in Disney Princess Enchanted Tales: Follow Your Dreams, Disney Junior hit show Sofia the First, live action film Maleficent, and Descendants 2.

Join Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather this Winter in Beginning Acting Class on Friday evenings or Saturday mornings. These drama classes designed especially for students grades K-2 will round out your student’s performing arts education this Winter perfectly! Register today for a chance to come on our annual NYC bus trip– this year to see Disney’s Frozen on Broadway while seats are still available.

The Critters in James and the Giant Peach

Spider is a clever creature who becomes a fun-loving older sister to James.

Ladybug immediately takes on the doting, maternal role in James‘ life. 

Grasshoper is the leader of the Insects. Ever the optimist, he assumes a paternal role in James‘ life.

Centipede is a bit of a grouch, but he is ever-loyal to the pack. Will he win over James by the end of the story?

Earthworm is one part gentle spirit, one part coward. Will he be able to gain enough courage to save the day for James and the rest of their Insect pals?

Last Call for Lion King T-Shirts!

Our Fall T-shirt fundraiser is currently underway! Sport your DLC pride and commemorate your studen’s production of The Lion King with a t-shirt (or two… or three). The sale ends on Friday, so order yours today!

These super-soft t-shirts come in both youth and adult sizes, so there’s the perfect shirt for everyone in your family. We’ve partnered again with Custom Ink Fundraising, who will donate a portion of the proceeds back to Drama Learning Center. These shirts help offset production costs and keep your tuition affordable. What does that mean? When you participate in fundraisers like this one, we’re able to raise money for costumes, set pieces, props, and professional theatre technicians. That way, more of the money that you pay for tuition goes directly to paying your teaching artists. We’re committed to keeping tuition affordable, and that’s why we periodically hold fundraisers just like this one. Thank you in advance for supporting your child’s journey in the arts!

This fundraiser closes on Friday, October 20th. We aren’t able to honor any late orders, so make sure that you order yours on time so that you don’t miss out.
