Don’t sleep through Boston pantomime, catch it before it goes

Christmas may be over but you can still get into the spirit of the season with the Polka Dot pantomime at Blackfriars Theatre., in Boston.

The show, Sleeping Beauty, will be carrying on until Sunday night, so there’s still plenty of time to go see it.

Evil forces are at play in this far from sleepy production of the classic fairy tale story of Princess Aurora – the girl who pricks her finger on a spinning wheel and falls asleep for 100 years.

The Polka Dot Pantomime production promises a true traditional battle of good and evil, with the conniving, calculating Carabosse (Gabrielle Bradshaw) concocting spells and potions in a bid to out do the loveable Fairy Flustered (Emma Carter).

Nurse Nanny Nora (Craig Cowdroy) will be delivering a dame-sized performance as she prescribes laughter and comedy for all the family, and a handsome hero (Ed Norwood) from lands far away will be searching for his princess in this panto tale.

Book your tickets now and prepare to be spellbound by this spectacular pantomime.

They cost £12 adult (£11 conc) and £42 for a family of four.
