Family pantomime Sleeping Beauty at Buxton Opera House this Christmas!

Sleeping Beauty at Buxton Opera

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away…

The beautiful Princess is about to celebrate her birthday. The King has banned all spinning wheels from the kingdom, but will this save the Princess from the Evil Fairy’s curse?

This Christmas, Sleeping Beauty will provide side-splitting comedy, colourful dance routines and a scary dragon – for an unforgettable Christmas pantomime at Buxton Opera House.

Join their brilliant cast and the handsome Prince as they try to save the day and stop Sleeping Beauty’s 100-year slumber!

Panto favourite James Holmes returns to Buxton to play Carabossy – a familiar face on tv, James is best known for his many appearances as Clive in the award-winning TV comedy Miranda. Other Buxton favourite Matthew Ryan will play Jock.

As usual, expect a roller coaster ride packed full of fun, songs, slapstick and dance!
