CEBU, Philippines - CCD’s “The Sleeping Beauty” is an abridged version that shows the significant twists and turns of the immortal love of different generations.

Guest artist Paul Jayson Austria plays the male lead as Prince Florimund. Isaiah Villamter, also a guest artist, alternates for the role of the male Bluebird with CCD’s Rufo Jeffrey Tapang.
