Sleeping Beauty

Spectacular, funny and unbelievably feel-good, this PHA production follows the story of Princess Ariana, who after pricking her finger on a magic spinning wheel, is placed under a curse, forcing her to sleep for 100 years. 

Join Ariana and her friends Muddles the Jester, Prince Benedict, Dolly Doolittle the Dame and King Crumble of Dilly-Dale in their attempts to rescue the Kingdom from the wicked Carabosse. 

Will the Princess be saved?  Will Muddles find true love?  Who will outwit Carabosse and foil her vile plans? Find out in the ultimate magical pantomime adventure! 

True to panto form there’ll be brilliant goodies and baddies, singing, dancing, a wedding and, if you wish hard enough, a happy ever after! Spun together with sumptuous sets, gorgeous fairy tale costumes, big song and dance numbers, a little bit of magic and bags of audience participation, make Sleeping Beauty the pantomime of your dreams and book your tickets now!

Tickets & Times

  • The best Panto we have seen in a long, long, time. Absolutely first class on every level. The venue is superb.

  • Fantastic. A lovely theatre and the cast got everyone involved, singing, stamping our feet, audience participation, a truly wonderful performance by Myra Dubois with quick jokes and as a the person next to me stated ‘A proper Dame’. The whole cast gave laughs and songs which capitated and encouraged, well done to crew and front of house. A lovely place to come!

  • Absolutely loved it. 10 of us went aged from 4 to 49 and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. So funny. The panto was brilliant and it's the first time id been to the theatre. It's small and cosy and you really feel part of it.
