King's panto Sleeping Beauty

Once upon a time in a land far far away, the beautiful Princess Aurora is given a sixteenth birthday present by her evil godmother Carabosse.

By pricking her finger on an enchanted spinning wheel she is placed under a cruel curse and forced to sleep for 100 years. Can true love survive and the handsome Prince Charming break the spell? Can Aurora’s hilarious best friend Muddles help save the town and who will outwit the evil Enchantress and foil her wicked plans?

As Scotland’s biggest and best-selling panto, with more than 90,000 theatregoers cheering the goodies and booing the baddy each festive season, it’s been 26 years since the spell-binding fairy tale Sleeping Beauty was last performed as the King’s pantomime and it has only been performed three times in the theatre's 110-year history.
