Sleeping Beauty – Wake up Little Snoozie! Liverpool Everyman
This is literally a laugh a minute! A really great camp panto with loads of jokes for the kids and adults and wonderful rock ‘n roll numbers. You can tell what’s coming when you hear that the prince’s father is called Nutbush!
The cast is great, good singers and musicians too with a stage set up at the back of the stage where they play the songs that move the play along. You all know the story, princess pricks her finger on a poison spinning wheel, goes into deep slumer only to be awakened by a kiss from a charming prince. Well, that’s the only thing that is conventional about this.
There are great camp performances all round, Nicky Swift as Milly Moon Beam is a great singer, Francis Tucker as Queen Ashley of Egg Bush very funny as a dame. My favourites though were Adam Keast as King Ashley of Egg Bush and David McGranaghan as Oderon. David was particularly good, reminiscent of Tim Curry as Doctor Frankenfurter. He should consider taking that role in future.
If you want a good hearty laugh this Christmas then look no further than this great singalong, laughalong panto! It is guaranteed to make you feel good no matter what the weather!
