Sleeping Beauty Auditions

    

Event details


Sleeping Beauty, by Audrey Tyson, Adapted by David and Helena Hitchcock
Directed by Heather Lee
St. Luke’s Players presents the classic story of Sleeping Beauty - with a celebration of a new darling baby princess, a nasty curse from an uninvited guest and the banishment of pins from the land. Cheer and boo and be in on what happens next - Panto-style, as the day is saved with singing, dancing, lame jokes and silly good fun. A favourite for all ages and always a sell-out!
