Don't be caught snoozing as we announce the cast of Sleeping Beauty, our 2021/22 King's Panto!

We're delighted to announce that Allan Stewart and Grant Stott return to their pantomime home as Queen May and Carabosse in the 2021/22 King's Panto, Sleeping Beauty!

They’ll be accompanied by panto-favourite Jordan Young in the role of Muddles.

Sia Dauda will play Princess Beauty and Nicola Meehan appears as The Good Fairy.

Clare Gray returns to the King’s Panto as Narcissa. Her presence in the cast is a very fitting tribute to her father Andy Gray who sadly passed away last year.

This will be the last pantomime at the King’s Theatre before it closes for a £25million redevelopment next year!

The 2022/23 and 2023/24 Pantos will be presented at the Festival Theatre before making a triumphant return to the King’s in 2024 when it reopens.

Are you excited?

Allan Stewart is! He had this to say: “I can’t wait to get back into a frock and get onto the wonderful King’s stage. Old lady of Leven St I’ve missed you.”

Grant Stott also can't wait to be back, saying, “It’s amazing to be actually talking about returning to Panto again after such a difficult time for us all.  This year will truly be a special show for many reasons; getting back on stage in front of a King’s audience, our last show before the refurbishment and our first show back without Andy. I’m sure it will be emotional for each and every audience member as well as all of us working on the show - such was Andy’s presence in the theatre. Having his lovely Clare back with us will make it very special indeed for us all.”

Fiona Gibson, our CEO, looks forward to welcoming you back through our doors, saying, "We're so delighted to have the King's panto back for another year, the staff and the audiences missed its magic and sparkle so much last Christmas. Sleeping Beauty, resplendent with all the family fun, songs, jokes and wonder we've come to expect, will be just the festive treat we all need this winter."
