Sleeping Beauty


A traditional English pantomime by Jo Phenix with Doug MacDougall

Directed by Doug MacDougall

A Century Theatre Guild production
ACT-CO Festival Entry

Set in the middle ages, “Sleeping Beauty” is the latest in a series of traditional pantomimes from Century Theatre Guild in Hillsburgh. Chock full of twists and turns, music and laughter, our ragtag band of heroes try to thwart the evil Poison Ivy who has her sights set on casting Princess Briar Rose into a deep century-long slumber from which she will not wake. Thanks to fairy magic, time travel and the help of some unexpected characters along the journey, love may just conquer all in the end! Throw in some familiar songs, cheesy puns, wild chases, and some modern dance hits and you have the makings for great musical comedy! “Sleeping Beauty” also marks the return of Artistic Director Doug MacDougall who also contributed to Jo Phenix’s original script and tried his hand at choreography in this production. Friends, family and theatregoers alike will enjoy this lively and hilarious new take on the legendary story in authentic panto style. Come out and be part of the action in “Sleeping Beauty” cheering on our heroes, booing the villains and maybe even having your “15 minutes of fame” on stage – don’t forget – pantomime is suitable for all ages!!! The best value in family entertainment. For ages 3-103.
