Sleeping Beauty

A fantastic fun filled traditional family pantomime

Rowntree Players

6 December to 13 December 2008

Loosely based on a famous fairytale with madness and mayhem!

Evil Witch Hazel doesn't get invited to the christening of baby Rose so casts a spell on her so that if she pricks her finger before her 18th birthday she will sleep for 100 years!

Musical spectacular with lots of zany dance routines, silly plot lines, and dont forget the slapstick!

Prepare to be entertained again by the group who brought you Aladdin last year.

Directed by Caroline Heppell, Produced by Howard Ella. Musical Director Vic Heard supported by Dan Hield. Choreographer Claire Horsley supported by Siân Davies

Les Miserables - Le Panto


16 December 2008

It is France 1815, seven year old Cosette is saved from the clutches of an evil innkeeper and his wife by our hero Jean Valjean. But our hero is an ex-convict who is being relentlessly pursued by the pompous purist policeman Javert!

Will Cosette find secours? Will Javert arrest the suckers? Will Valjean finally succumb?

Adventure and tension, barricades and battles. Love, liturgy and laughs aplenty this Christmas as Oddsocks take on the French revolution and comes out on top!
