Regal Entertainments continue their commitment to delivering top class year round pantos with their latest half-term offering in the form of family favourite Sleeping Beauty.
Starring theatre legend Claire Sweeney and the much loved Tam Ryan this is a high energy, high quality, fantastically fun family show that delivers first class entertainment for both children and adults alike.
There’s the traditional opportunities to boo, cheer and scream, ‘It’s behind you’ as well as just the right amount of cheeky jokes to keep Mum and Dad entertained as the little ones in the audience giggle and sing along to lots of well-known classics including Always Look on the Brightside of Life and Proud Mary.
Claire Sweeney is brilliantly cast as Carabosse, bad tempered, bad mannered and of course completely wicked. She whips the audience into a booing frenzy as she attempts to spread doom and gloom across the Kingdom by ruining Sleeping Beauty’s plans for happiness with Prince George.
Sweeney is joined by a very strong cast who each bring enormous fun to this great production. Panto favourite Tam Ryan is on top form as Chester the Jester, wonderfully entertaining and charmingly cheeky he has the audience in hysterics from start to finish.
Jess Pritchard also shines as Fairy Sparkle, delivering every line in rhyme she guides us through the story with her witty and sharp narration.
With stunning costumes, impressive sets and beautiful choreography from Sarah Walker, Sleeping Beauty will have you wishing it was panto season all year round, oh no it won’t, oh yes it will!
On at the Theatre Royal St Helens until Sunday 29th October, tickets available here; www.sthelenstheatreroyal.com/show/?show_id=873570128
