Now established as a firm favourite in the New Adventures repertoire, the award-winning SLEEPING BEAUTY reawakens in Bradford this February.

Enter a wondrous world of magical fairies and vampires, where the timeless tale of good vs evil is turned upside-down, creating a supernatural love story that even the passage of time itself cannot hinder. Will Princess Aurora ever find her true love again?

With an unforgettable score by Tchaikovsky, sumptuous sets and costumes, evocative lighting and masterly storytelling, the beloved fairy tale is brought to life by the uniquely talented New Adventures company. Audiences will be transported in time from the halcyon days of the late Edwardian era through to the modern day in this dazzling gothic romance.

The stellar cast for SLEEPING BEAUTY includes several original cast members as well as a young generation of performers new to this beloved production.

Ashley Shaw returns to the iconic role of ‘Princess Aurora’ along with Katrina Lyndon making her debut in the role. Aurora’s devoted ‘Leo’ will be played by Andrew Monaghan, with Stephen Murray and Rory Macleod both making their debuts in the role.

The Dark Fairy, ‘Carabosse’ and her son, ‘Caradoc’ feature debuts from Paris Fitzpatrick, Jackson Fisch and Ben Brown whilst the vampiric Good Fairy, ‘Count Lilac’, will also be played by Paris Fitzpatrick along with Dominic North and Christopher Thomas, all making their debuts in this role.
