Sleeping Beauty

Panto in the Presidio

Panto in the Presidio returns with an over-the-top musical re-imagining of the classic fairytale Sleeping Beauty, set in the magical kingdom of Pantoland, a mythical realm that bears a striking resemblance to contemporary San Francisco. The production features familiar characters including the princess and prince, an evil witch and fairy godmothers, and adds a chorus of singing chickens and a lovable rooster named Pecker that audiences will remember from last year’s Panto, The Magic Lamp. New this year, audiences will be treated to interactive experiences in the lobbies and outdoor plaza of the theatre with cast members before curtain and during intermission.
