Lesley Butler in Sleeping Beauty

Professional pantomime returns to The Hope Street Theatre in Liverpool.

Local talent will be behind a production of Sleeping Beauty.

Casting her wicked ways as Carabosse will be Liverpool Live’s Lesley Butler, who will be joined by the station’s breakfast host Aaron Hayes as deliciously divine Dame Dolly. Lucy Forrester will be Princess Aurora. Local performer Brian Comer becomes Fester the Jester while Gabrielle Dams is Fairy Spells and making his professional pantomime debut will be Tony George-Owens as Prince Henry.

The company will be joined by an adult ensemble from Liverpool Theatre School and a Junior Ensemble from Performers Theatre School.

Sleeping Beauty runs from December 16-30.
