York’s pantomime family come together again for Sleeping Beauty

York Theatre Royal’s pantomime family Martin Barrass, Suzy Cooper, A.J Powell and David Leonard will reunite this Christmas to star in Sleeping Beauty from 07 December to 25 January.

Pantomime legend Berwick Kaler, who stepped down in February as the theatre’s long-serving Dame after 40 years, is writing the script.

Executive director Tom Bird said: “We are delighted that Martin, Suzy, David and AJ will return to York Theatre Royal for Sleeping Beauty this Christmas. The pantomime ‘family’ mean a huge amount to our community and have provided so much joy to the people of York for so many years.

“We are also thrilled that Berwick will continue his association with the theatre by writing the script. Here’s to a wonderful winter at York Theatre Royal.”

Tickets go on sale on Friday 15 March with a special Earlybird offer. Pantomime stars David, Martin, A.J and Berwick are expected to be at the theatre to meet and greet the early bookers.

Tickets from £15. There will be 68 performances with two shows most days.

Early bookers can take advantage of an Early Bird offer giving £5 off top price tickets until 15 April.
