About Sleeping Beauty

Experience the magic of this year’s pantomime, Sleeping Beauty.

With spectacular costumes, stunning sets, plenty of belly-laughs and magical musical numbers, our legendary panto is the perfect festive treat.

Discover the magical kingdom of Princess Rosalind a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty brought to life on Nottingham Playhouse’s stage. When Sleeping Beauty pricks her finger on evil fairy Maleficent’s spinning wheel the entire kingdom is sent to sleep.

Join us to find out if brave Prince Alexander, Jerry the Jester and Fairy Wisheart can foil the evil fairy’s plans and save Sleeping Beauty. Will they live happily ever after?

Featuring all your festive favourites – slapstick comedy from your pantomime dame, “It’s behind you!” banter, and a colourful pantomime villain in the shape of evil fairy Maleficent.

Guaranteed great fun for all the family, there are surprises in store for you at every performance.
