Sleeping Beauty

Make Sleeping Beauty the pantomime of your dreams!

Once upon a time in a land far away, Princess Aurora is given a twenty-first birthday present by her evil aunt Carabosse. By pricking her finger on an enchanted spinning wheel she is placed under a cruel curse and forced to sleep for 100 years.

Starring award-winning comedy actor and writer Gary: Tank Commander who will be joining returning panto favourites Alan McHugh as Nurse Nellie Macduff, Paul J Corrigan as Slimeball, Julie Coombe as Carabosse and Aberdonians Danielle Jam as The Spirit of Pantomime and Michael Karl-Lewis as the Prince.

Can true love survive and Prince Charming break the spell? Who will outwit the evil Enchantress and foil her wicked plans? All will be revealed in this spectacular panto packed with magic, music, comedy and special effects.

Don’t get caught snoozing, book your tickets now!
