Sleeping Beauty


Thursday 7 to Sunday 31 December

About this event

The Princess is searching for happiness, Evil Carabosse is searching for revenge, Chester the Jester is searching for someone to laugh at his terrible jokes and Dame Nellie Night Nurse is searching for a man.... in the two front rows! After scaling new heights with Jack and the Beanstalk last year, Sleeping Beauty promises to be even bigger and better! It’s sure to leave audiences spellbound as we spin the great adventure of a very lengthy snooze!

We are delighted to welcome back Joe Tracini as he returns to The Central Theatre to play Chester the Jester, following his huge success as Simple Simon last year in Jack and the Beanstalk.

The star studded cast includes:

  • Hollyoaks star Joe Tracini as Chester the Jester
  • Hollyoaks star Andy Moss as Prince Valiant
  • Former Brookside and West End actress Claire Sweeney as Carabosse
  • Ian Good as Dame Nellie Night Nurse
  • Carol Heffernan as Princess Belle
