CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.

Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping BeautyT1694887283
A princess under a fairy's curse pricks her finger on a spindle and sleeps for a hundred years, waiting to be woken by a prince's kiss. But hold on a moment. There's a distinctly different slant to this story. The princess is beautiful and spirited but there are two princes and a lot of threatening thorns. As for the fairy who caused all the trouble in the first place - well, putting things right isn't as simple as casting another spell. Rufus Norris's splendidly entertaining and mischievous version of the original fairy tale ventures beyond the usual ?happy ever after' ending with the prince and princess united. The course of true love never did run smooth - especially if your mother-in-law is an ogress with an unfortunate taste for human flesh...
