The theatre at the Hall for Cornwall will be filled with the sound of boos and hisses this month as its stages its ever popular pantomime.

This year's production is Sleeping Beauty which had its opening night last night (Tuesday) and now runs until December 31, with morning, matinee and evening performances aimed at keeping the whole family entertained.

The 7pm show on Friday, December 8, is a signed performance.

Edward ‘Kernow King’ Rowe and Granville Saxton return again in Sleeping Beauty, the final chapter in a trilogy of adventures featuring the much loved Cornishman, Kenwyne and his extended family. Disaster has befallen the Kingdom of King Mark.

Beloved Princess Rose has been struck down by an ancient curse which forces her to sleep for an eternity, the King is nowhere to be seen and sinister forces are plotting to take power. What we need is a hero. But is there anyone brave enough to take on this princely quest? Who will defeat the dreaded dragon Leatherclaw and awaken our sleeping beauty with true love’s kiss?

From the creative team that brought you hit shows Dick Whittington and his Mousehole Cat! and Jack and the Beanstalk, Hall for Cornwall are proud to present its own home grown production to enchant and entertain adults and children alike.

The cast is headed by Edward ‘Kernow King’ Rowe as Kenwyne with Granville Saxton as King Mark, Darren Seed as Prince George and Jennifer Clement as Princess Rose.
