Sleeping Beauty returns this 2023 holiday season, back by popular demand! A wildly funny musical mashup of true love, talking dogs, singing chickens, dancing ghosts, and enough fairy magic for the entire family. Audiences can join in the Panto traditions of booing the villains, cheering the heroes, singing along to popular songs played by a live band – with a few new lyrics – and helping the fairies cast magic spells. Will the evil witch Hernia be defeated? Will the princess Sonoma ever find her true love’s kiss? This holiday delight will have audience members out of their seats to get in on the action.
“Do you need a new annual holiday tradition? Look no further than Presidio Theatre’s pantomime production of Sleeping Beauty.”
