PANTO-LOVERS are already getting excited ahead of this year's production at The Grange Theatre in Hartford.

KD Theatre Productions is returning following last year's successful show of 'Cinderella' to put on 'Sleeping Beauty' which is set to delight audiences of all ages.

The production will run between December 10, 2022, and January 2, 2023, but already work is underway behind the scenes on casting, set and scenery design and costumes.

Sleeping Beauty tells the tale of the beautiful Princess Aurora, who will capture the hearts of young and old alike.

But when evil Carabosse causes Princess Aurora to prick her finger on a spinning wheel and fall into an enchanted sleep, will the dashing Prince Harry be able to save Aurora from her slumber?

Will Aurora’s hilarious Nurse O’Dear ever find a new husband? And will Aurora’s best friend Muddles finally get the court Jester job he’s so longed for?

Paul Edwards, theatre manager at The Grange, said: "The Grange Theatre is absolutely thrilled to be working in association with KD Theatre Productions again for its sixth pantomime with us.

"Pantomime is a huge part of the local community and this promises to be a "beauty" of a Christmas show for the whole family.”

The production is written by Daniel Bell with further creatives to be announced.

Daniel, along with Katherine Hickmott, the producers for KD Theatre Productions, said: "We are delighted to be returning to The Grange for our sixth year bringing magical, high quality, family entertainment to the Cheshire audiences, who really do love their pantomime.

"We are creating our most spectacular and exciting pantomime to date and can’t wait to announce our casting very soon."
