Sleeping Beauty Pantomime – The Theatre, Chipping Norton

Once Upon A Time there lived a Princess, her long-suffering Nanny, her doting Fairy Godmother, and grumpy old King Lenny.

On her 18th birthday, the Princess pricks her finger on a spinning wheel and falls deeply asleep. When she wakes up, exactly four hundred years have passed and things have got a whole lot groovier… But who just kissed her? What strange clothes everyone is wearing! And what’s that music?!

Heaps of jokes, oodles of fantastic original tunes and a good dash of British History combine to make this a Sleeping Beauty like no other. From the glorious pageantry of the Tudors to the flower-powered freedom of the sixties, Chipping Norton’s panto is the most spectacular, the most splendid and the most stupefyingly funny show of the year.


Location: The Theatre, 2 Spring Street, Chipping Norton. OX7 5NL

Dates: Tuesday 14 November 2017 – Sunday 14 January 2018
