We’re delighted to announce Sleeping Beauty as the King’s Theatre Edinburgh panto for 2020/21, opening on Saturday 28 November 2020 and running until Sunday 17 January 2021.

As Scotland’s biggest and best-selling panto, with over 90,000 theatregoers attending the King’s Theatre pantomime each festive season, it’s never too early to book for next year’s show!

Once upon a time in a land far far away, the beautiful Princess Aurora is given a sixteenth birthday present by her evil godmother Carabosse. By pricking her finger on an enchanted spinning wheel she is placed under a cruel curse and forced to sleep for 100 years. Can true love survive and the handsome Prince Charming break the spell? Can Aurora’s hilarious best friend Muddles help save the town and who will outwit the evil Enchantress and foil her wicked plans?

Starring Allan Stewart, Andy Gray, Grant Stott and Jordan Young, the spellbinding fairytale was last performed as the King’s pantomime title in 1993 and has only been performed three times in its 110-year history.

Make sure not to miss its spectacular return and book your tickets now.
