The tale of the sleeping beauty - sleeping under the spell of a wicked witch until her Prince Charming comes to wake her up. A quirky, comic re-telling of the classic fairy story through the eyes of the mischievous Fairy Goody. Having condemned the beautiful princess to an enchanted sleep in a fit of anger, she then has to seek out a suitably brave and handsome prince to break the spell. But the dashing prince doesn't match up to expectations and Beauty's happy ever after doesn't quite go to plan. An enchanted forest, fantastical creatures and a mother-in-law who turns out to be an ogre combine to create an entertaining story that will be enjoyed by children and adults alike. Expect a touch of Roald Dahl in this acclaimed version by Rufus Norris with plenty of original music.
