Magical characters and original music will bring classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty to life.

Colourful sets, fairytale costumes, lively songs and dance numbers will feature in a musical stage version of the well-loved story which will be performed at the Pomegranate Theatdre, Chesterfield, on Saturday and Sunday, April 21 and 22.

The King and Queen are throwing a party to celebrate the birth of their beautiful daughter Princess Aurora. Everyone is invited - everyone apart from Narcissus, a cruel and wicked Fairy. When Narcissus discovers she hasn’t been invited to the celebrations she gatecrashes and curses the baby Princess! it’s left up to the good fairies, Bluebell, Primrose and Tulip to try and save the day!

Sixteen years later, Aurora (played by Abigail Honeywill, pictured) is getting ready for her birthday party when Narcissus arrives disguised as a kind old lady, and tempts Aurora away. Aurora is taken to an unexplored room in the castle where she sees a spinning wheel for the first time and is so intrigued she pricks her finger, falling asleep instantly. Bluebell, Primrose and Tulip cannot bear to tell the King & Queen what has happened and so they use their magic again and send the whole kingdom into a deep sleep.

What will become of the sleeping princess? Will she be left to sleep forever? Can true love save the day?
