Sleeping Beauty Overview
…a beauty of a panto…
Sleeping Beauty is an enchanting mix of music, magic, adventure and pantomime fun with bags of audience participation and a magical star line up.
This year, for the first time, pantomime is brought to Southport by one of the country’s top pantomime producers, Imagine Theatre, with a script written by the BAFTA Award winning writing team of Iain Lauchlan and Will Brenton.
The star-studded cast is headed by former Coronation Street legend Ken Morley as King Bumble, with his daughter Princess Belle, played by Hi-5’s Emma Nowell. Joining them is Tracy Beaker and Waterloo Road star Kay Purcell as the wicked fairy Carabosse who curses the princess so that on her 18th birthday she will prick her finger upon a spinning wheel and die. Azuriel, the good fairy alters the spell that sends the princess into an enchanted sleep which will last for one hundred years. The only way she can be awoken is by a kiss from her one true love.
Back by popular demand is the hilarious Nick Newbould as Josh the Jester who will have you in fits of laughter throughout! Join Josh, Nurse Nanny Nora and the dashing Prince Valiant as they battle with dragons and time machines to ensure the Prince can wake the sleeping Princess on time!
With spectacular sets and costumes, fabulous songs and dances and bags of slapstick fun Sleeping Beauty is a pantomime not to be missed!
