Traditional panto fun for all ages.

Once upon a time in a land not so far away the beautiful Princess Aurora is tricked by an evil fairy and falls into a deep sleep. A hush falls over the castle as they wait for her true love to awaken her from her slumber…

Step up Nanny and the dream team as they battle to save the day. Will they defeat the evil fairy? Will love conquer all?

This spell-binding production is full of songs to sing along to and stunning dance routines, plus plenty of magic and sparkle.

Our ever-popular pantomime has become a fun-filled tradition for the families of Newbury and beyond. Set your alarms now – to miss Sleeping Beauty would be a nightmare!

Sleeping Beauty is written and directed by comedy writing team Plested and Brown. Plested and Brown, a comedy theatre company comprising Clare Plested, Adam Brown and Amanda Wilsher, have created numerous Edinburgh Fringe hits, many of which were performed at New Greenham Arts and as part of Newbury Comedy Festival. Audiences will remember Clare Plested and Adam Brown for their infamous performances in Corn Exchange pantomimes, the last one being Sleeping Beauty in 2010, and they were a resident theatre company at New Greenham Arts.
