Dame Taffeta Trott is donning her bloomers, Princess Susie has made her bed and Simon Steadfast is readying to be a hero; the final amends are being made to the costumes, the make-up is perfected and the saxophone, guitars and drums are polished, tuned and ready to go.

It can only mean one thing – Leeds’ famous Rock ‘n’ Roll Panto is about to hit the town.

This year Sleeping Beauty gets the Rock ‘n’ Roll treatment at City Varieties Music Hall bringing festive frolics to Leeds from Saturday 26th November to Sunday 8th January.

“Our Rock’n’Roll Pantos have been extremely popular since they were first introduced in 2011,” says Ian Sime, General Manager at City Varieties. “They have grown year on year and have now become a Christmas tradition for families in Leeds and beyond.”

Billed as a hilarious, high-speed show audiences this year will find themselves singing along to The Eagles, Whitney Houston, Marvin Gaye and Cher to name but a few.

With all the familiar characters, corny jokes and the added bonus of a full-blown, and now legendary, ‘boulder fight’, Sleeping Beauty promises a spectacular show that has something for the whole family.

Sleeping Beauty the Rock ‘n’ Roll Panto is at City Varieties Music Hall from Saturday 26th November 2016 to Sunday 8th January 2017

Tickets are on sale now priced from £14 to £25
