Sleeping Beauty – The Panto
5 December - 15 December
The Hong Kong Players are back to present their 58th panto, Sleeping Beauty – a spectacular re-imagining of the classic fairy tale designed to delight all the family with jokes old and . . . older! All is not well in the Seven Kingdoms. As King Frump celebrates the birth of his first child, Beauty, the evil Fairy Marla crashes the happy occasion and curses Beauty to sleep for 100 years when she reaches her 18th birthday. But as Beauty’s big day approaches, she finds she has bigger problems to deal with than just her own. Can Beauty, the brave Prince and his Squire, the good Fairy Splenda, and some unlikely allies, overcome all the troubles that face the Kingdom? Take the family along to find out, and enjoy this fabulous Christmas show that’s sure to put you in a festive mood!
Said Director Eric Ng: “I’m very proud to be helming this year’s panto. It is sure to be funny and charming, with a mix of familiar and comforting elements – and maybe even an unexpected twist or two!”
