Can true love survive and the handsome Prince Charming break the spell? Can Beauty’s hilarious best friend Muddles help save the day and who will outwit the evil Carabosse and foil her wicked plans?

The critical consensus

It's good fun and very silly.

This production of Sleeping Beauty was a huge let-down as it felt very mass produced. I'm not opposed to change but this year The King's panto has lost its heart.

I guess it's a testament to the success of this Sleeping Beauty that it just about won me over from my fortress of cynicism, and even made me laugh a few times.

***(*)(*)Simon Thompson, What's On Stage, 08/12/2017

The whole show emerges as a classic spectacular big-city panto, confident of where it comes from, and – more or less – of where it’s going.

The weak structure becomes apparent in the wake of moments of real joy.
