Sleeping Beauty Takes A Prick!: Full cast and the creative team

The West End pantomime will feature the previously announced Matthew Baldwin in the role of Queen Gertrude, accompanied by a talented ensemble including Nikki Biddington (known for 'Faking Bad: A Parody Methsical' at Turbine Theatre), Natalia Brown (renowned for 'Ain’t Too Proud' in the West End), Matthew Gent (a performer from 'Cabaret' in the West End), Myles Hart (known for 'The Book of Mormon' in the West End), Chris Lane (celebrated for 'Sh!tfaced Shakespeare' on the UK tour and in London), Tom Mann (from 'Fanny & Stella' at Above the Stag), Jordan Stamatiadis (known for 'Stephen Sondheim’s Old Friends: A Celebration' in the West End), and Fin Walton (making his professional debut).

Sleeping Beauty Takes A Prick! is co-written by Jon Bradfield and Martin Hooper, featuring original songs composed by Jon Bradfield. Hailing from the creative minds behind the beloved Christmas productions at the now-closed Above The Stag theatre, these legendary shows boldly placed gay characters at the forefront of cherished fairytales, adventures, and legends. These irreverent and inventive performances, widely celebrated as a highlight of the festive theater season, became the most successful alternative pantomime series in the country. Over the span of a decade, these productions enjoyed consistently packed audiences, with the most recent one boasting an impressive 70 performances. This series garnered a devoted following and earned critical acclaim.

Join in on a delightfully absurd and provocatively humorous festive extravaganza. Make sure to book your tickets in advance!
