South Hill Park Arts Centre has announced that their Christmas pantomime will take place this December following last year’s award-winning performance of Jack and the Beanstalk.

From Friday, November 24 to Sunday, December 31, The Wilde Theatre will be filled with more magic and mayhem in the 2023 production of Sleeping Beauty.

The arts centre has expressed its excitement to have Jayce Branagh back to write this year’s script after winning the 2023 UK Pantomime Award for Best Script for Jack and the Beanstalk.

A fantastic line-up will include returning stars from the 2022 panto - Michael Ayiotis as Pickle and Paul Toulson as Fairy Moppins.

Newcomers to the SHP Christmas season will include Nick Murphy as King Archibald of Bracknell, Charlie Nobel as Prince Percy of Slough, Josselyn Ryder as Villanelle and Maisie Scarlett as Princess Briar Rose.
