Sleeping Beauty at the Dukes

Families can enjoy a magical adventure at The Dukes as the Lancaster venue welcomes live theatre back with a brand-new, socially distanced production of Sleeping Beauty.

Performed in the Round from May 25 to June 6, this new take on the classic tale is co-written and co-directed by Sarah Punshon and Daniel Bye.

Two fairy godmothers tell the tale of Rosie, a bold and daring young girl whose journey into the unknown depths of the forest puts her face-to-face with hidden castles, magic spells and a wicked fairy.
