It’s a fabulous, fairytale treat for all the family!
Once upon a time in a land far, far away a beautiful princess is born and the King and Queen throw a huge celebration, inviting guests from all across the land to bestow gifts upon their beloved baby girl. Her trio of doting Fairy Godmothers also gather at the feast and grant the magical gifts of beauty, wit and grace on the child. But one evil person is not in the mood for celebrating…
The King and Queen forgot to invite the wicked fairy Carabosse who sweeps into the palace and in her rage places a terrible curse on the beautiful new princess – on her sixteenth birthday she will prick her finger on a spinning wheel and fall asleep for one hundred years!
Who can save the princess now? The Good Fairy, Silly Billy, The Handsome Prince? They say only true love’s kiss will break the spell! Fly to Blackpool’s Grand Theatre and find out how the story ends…
