Theatre Under the Stars presents Sleeping Beauty and Her Winter Knight
Disney star Garrett Clayton will reprise his role in the Theatre Under The Stars and Lythgoe Family Panto holiday production of Sleeping Beauty and Her Winter Knight.

The Royal Family live under protection from Silly Billy and Nanny Tickle, but Aurora does prick her finger and falls asleep for 100 years. A handsome Prince saves the day by defeating the wicked fairy and giving Aurora a true love kiss.
Audiences can expect many different interactive elements from this one-of-a-kind production including booing the evil villain, cheering for the heroes, and partying down to the pop songs everyone knows and loves. Families will be singing along and dancing in the aisles with this fun and uplifting soundtrack of hits.
