Westville Theatre Club is staging a modern day pantomime version of the classic fairytale, Sleeping Beauty, subtitled (Inside The 21st Century) #2015 during December.

Featuring an IT nerd hero, a Greenpeace activist for a Princess (complete with her three ‘fairies’, a neurotic mother and an over-indulgent father) and a suitably evil Augusta Stern, recently fired from Castletech, the biggest corporation on Westville Square.

On the Eve of Aurora’s (the daughter of the chairman of the board of Castletech) 16th birthday, Augusta plans to poison the lovely girl using a ten-tiered birthday cake that her two nitwit sons managed to bake at home for the occasion. Featuring also “The Dame” – journalist Gwendoline Gil, this panto promises to have audiences giggling and singing throughout the show.

Liberally spiced with music and songs that narrate the story from the likes of Alexandra Burke, Le Cage Aux Folles, Michael Buble, The Andrews Sisters, Sweet Charity, Stacey Orrico, Scissor Sisters, Second Hand Serenade, Queen, Footloose, Katy Perry Timbaland, Beejees, Hairspray, Bryan Addams, Elton John, Avril Lavigne, Camp and PointerSisters.

The cast has pulled out all the stops to bring this production to life, learning lyrics that were written and adapted for the show. The four-piece band contributes to keeping the performers on their toes and making the show larger than life.

Sleeping Beauty runs from Thursdays to Saturdays at the Westville Theatre Club from December 3 to 12 at 20h00.There will be a matinee on December 5 at 15h00 and on December 6 at 16h00. Take your own eats and drinks.
