Thornbury Musical Theatre Group: The Sleeping Beauty

ONE of the best-loved fairy tales has been chosen by the award-winning Thornbury Musical Theatre Group as their pantomime this year.

The Sleeping Beauty will be staged at the Armstrong Hall in February and the group promises drama, romance, upbeat songs, fast dance routines and plenty of laughs.

Directed by Alice Walton, with music direction from John Mills and choreography by Ellie Nicholls, the cast will transport its audience to Merriville where the friendly local folk have had some special news. Nanny Nora is trying to find her best frock, Fairy Fairway is looking for apprentices, and Aunt Ophelia is thinking of how to ruin everything. Prince Romeo is the hero and Princess Crystal is the heroine.

Performances are from February 19-22 at 7.30pm each evening, with matinees on the Friday and Saturday at 2.30pm.

Adult tickets cost £12.50, with concessions and group discounts available.

They are bookable online at www.tmtg.org.uk, by phone on 07516 270140 and, from January 18, from Lisa Costa Residential Sales and Lettings, 53 High Street, Thornbury. There is a 50p booking fee however you buy your tickets.
