Sleeping Beauty is a classic fairy tale which involves a beautiful princess, a sleeping enchantment, and a handsome prince. This pantomime combines all the traditional elements with original characterisations, imaginative and innovative staging ideas and witty, melodic songs.

This was our first full-scale pantomime and we have produced a pantomime every year since. Strictly speaking this wasn’t an FDS production. At this time the Community Association staged its own pantomime but much of the cast were FDS. Read more… History of FDS.

4 shows were performed over 4 days.
