A family comedy where a stitch in time saves nine thousand years.

Aurora is the people’s princess of Wellingtonia – with a curse.

Brochure copy may need to be shortened depending on space restrictions. On her first birthday an evil spell is cast: One day she will prick her finger on a spinning wheel, sending her into an unbreakable deep sleep. With the help of sassy fairies that watch over her and a surprise visit from two interdimensional travellers, Aurora must venture through the time-space continuum to stay conscious and reclaim her throne from evil forces. An original pantomime that takes a beloved fairytale and adds equal amounts of song, dance, and sci-fi to bubble up a perfect potion the whole whānau will love. A high-energy romp of comedy and capers – Sleeping Beauty is anything but a snoozefest. Celebrating 20 years of Circa Theatre pantomimes.
