SLEEPING BEAUTY PANTO

Written by Audrey Tyson

Updated by David and Helena Hitchcock

Directed by Heather Lee

St. Luke’s Players presents the classic story of Sleeping Beauty—with a celebration of a new darling baby princess, a nasty curse from an uninvited guest and the banishment of pins from the land. Cheer and boo and be in on what happens next—Panto-style, as the day is saved with singing, dancing, lame jokes and silly, good fun. A favourite for all ages and always a sell-out!

Play runs December 14 – January 1

Rehearsals are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with some exceptions 7-10 pm (with consideration to children). A detailed schedule of rehearsals will be provided at auditions.

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS:

This is a traditional panto. All roles are stereotypes, over the top, overacted and, in some cases, overwhelming!

Kingmale. Henpecked by his wife and daughter.

Queenfemale. Dominant partner

Royal Pages/Ladies in Waiting: Lady Purl, Lady Plain,
Lady
Twistadult or teenage females

Albert the Horsepanto animal. Requiring two persons, male and/or female. No lines, but requires some agility and coordination!

Lady Titianaact and speak as a man, but is dressed as a woman (traditional Dame). Large in personality and movements. Outgoing, eccentric, exaggerated, witty “over the top”. Good physical and comedic sense of timing.

Fairy Clean, Fairy Lean, Fairy GreenAdult or teenage females
Fairy TeenTeenage female
Fairy Meanmale or female. Definitely the evil character of this panto. Likes being bad. Enjoys the audience boing him/her
