Sleeping Beauty has become a much loved traditional pantomime. The audience are invited to join in the celebrations of the birth of the Royal Princess Catherine and witness the evil Fairy Gravia cast her spell stating that the Princess would prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die! Can the good fairy Tania and her brother Bertie cast a counter spell to stop this from happening? Will Bertie earn his fairy wings? Will Prince William find his Princess? Will the Royal Nursemaid Mistess Bumble get her man? What will the Woodcutter spend all that money on? Do you believe in magic and fairy tales? The only way to find out is to book a ticket and come along to the show.
Directors, Juliana and Patrick haven’t worked together on a production like this since their much acclaimed production of “Cinderella – It’s A Kinda of Magic” ten years ago, and have enjoyed teaming up again.
We have an excellent cast including Nigel Dring as “Mistress Bumble”, Tom Murray and Rachel Hogg as “Bertie and Tania “ the good fairies, Ian Rushby as “Master of Ceremonies”, Mary Scott and Phil Cotterill as the “Minstrels” and Sharon Mace as the evil fairy “Gravia”.
We feel exceptionally priviledged and honoured that our President Jim Broadbent has agreed to take time out from his busy schedule promoting “The Iron Lady” to be our narrator.
