Sleeping Beauty - A NAUGHTY Panto Awakening

“A Holiday Tradition turned on its head!”

In our tale, Sleeping Beauty is at the centre of a conflict between the two telecommunications giants in Canada. With Maleficent trying to regain her power, a Prince who solves every problem with a kiss, and a kind and gentle Sasquatch, this fairytale re-telling pokes fun at cancel culture, performative politics, corporate greed, and our divisive society—all wrapped up in one entertaining musical package! This World Premiere panto is guaranteed holiday fun!
