Sleeping Beauty 24/11/2018 - 29/12/2018 Palace Theatre
With last year’s Dick Whittington being described as having “all the ingredients for a great Christmas night out” (Kilmarnock Standard) The Palace Theatre are planning another spectacular panto with the magical tale of Sleeping Beauty.

The show will star River City’s LEAH MACRAE as Fairy Flutterby, and back by popular demand are FRASER BOYLE as Nurse Senga and GARY MORRISON as Hilarious Hector.

As a result of a curse from the evil Carabosse, Princess Beauty pricks her finger on a spinning wheel and falls in to an enchanted sleep. Will Nurse Senga, Hector and the dashing Prince Lorenzo be able to save her before the hundred years are up and the Princess’ fate is sealed?

Once again the show will have all the ingredients for a magical family panto with spectacular sets and costumes, fabulous songs and dances and bags of slapstick fun!


Concession tickets are available to those under 16, students, in receipt of the state pension, or registered disabled. Other concessions maybe available (such as family tickets) but must be purchased through the Box Office directly either in person or over the phone.

After our Only One Direction show toured the World between 2012-2016, creating a show around Little Mix was the natural progression. We love the music and we wanted to bring something to the audience that was more than the tributes or lookalike shows available. Families are looking for higher quality productions that are as good as the real thing, but at a family friendly price. We’re proud to say that is exactly what we have achieved with this show.”
