Rep’s panto is a real beauty

Aaron Wise 27th Nov, 2017

THE FESTIVE season is finally here and so is Worcester Repertory Company’s magical family pantomime Sleeping Beauty.

Get ready for another spellbinding performance at the Swan Theatre as the Worcester Repertory Company present the sensationally breathtaking Sleeping Beauty! from Monday, December 4 to Sunday, January 7.

Starring Ben Humphrey as everyone’s favourite Dame Ginny, Liz Grand as the Wicked Witch Carabosse, Oliver Brooks as Silly Billy and Victoria Lucie as Princess Aurora, this is a panto not to be missed.

Come and join in the family fun and find out if Prince Valiant will make it to Sleeping Beauty before she falls into a 100-year sleep.

Will Wicked Witch Carabosse have her wicked way or will love’s first kiss save the day?

With dazzling costumes, stunning sets and audience participation aplenty, this all-singing, all-dancing spectacular will be everything you could have dreamed of, and more.

Ben Humphrey, who is also directing the show, said: “It’s fantastic to be working with a brand new script, which is fresh, vibrant and sparkling with humour. It’s also a really stellar cast.”

Originally founded in the 1960s, Worcester Repertory Company has played host to some of the finest names in theatre and stages productions all over UK and internationally.

Tickets range from £13.50 to £17.95.
