Sleeping Beauty - Theatre Royal St Helens

 

On Sunday evening, the 22nd of October, Lauren and I enjoyed a fab night out at the Theatre Royal in St Helens in Merseyside.  We were invited to review the currently running pantomime - Sleeping Beauty.
Sleeping Beauty tells the enchanting tale of Princess Aurora, who is cursed by the evil fairy Carabosse after failing to receive an invite to the Royal Christening, claiming that if the Princess pricks her finger, she will die. Years later at her 16th birthday, Aurora is tricked into piercing her finger on a spinning wheel by the evil fairy. After the curse is countered by the Lilac Fairy, Aurora instead falls into a deep and eternal slumber, which can only be broken by a kiss from her true love.

Will the beautiful princess find her true love and be freed from the evil fairy’s curse? What fate awaits the evil fairy? Well I won't give the game away too much, but what I will say is that the show is funny.  Both adults and children alike were giggling from start to finish and this, in part, was down to the hilarious Tam Ryan who kept the audience entertained from start to finish with his humour and off the cuff  jokes.  You could tell that some of his banter wasn't scripted, and it was well received by a packed out theatre audience.
 
There was a perfect balance of acting and singing.  Kids can sometimes get bored with the singing parts, but Lauren was kept amused throughout.  It was good to see the talented Claire Sweeney again.  The last time we saw her, was just before Christmas, in Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang at The Lowry.  She plays the role of the baddy, Carabosse and had the audience booing away!
 
If you are looking for something different to do, this Half Term, why not get down to St Helens Theatre Royal this October for a truly magical adventure?
