The Atkinson in Southport has announced its 2024 Christmas pantomime as Sleeping Beauty. Working alongside KD Theatre Productions Ltd, the thriving arts centre continues its Christmas tradition of staging a spectacular festive production throughout December.

KD Theatre wowed audiences at The Atkinson last year with their giant production of Jack and the Beanstalk:

 5* We came to the pantomime which was an excellent production. We really enjoyed this high-quality performance! The performers were absolutely brilliant…Trip Advisor

 5* My family and I had a lovely evening watching Jack & The Beanstalk. It was one of the best pantomimes we have seen. Very funny!!Google Review

 Was fab! We all enjoyed it! Even the grumpy teenagers! Facebook

Families will be pleased to see a variety of matinee and evening performances available for Sleeping Beauty at The Atkinson, with early-bird tickets on sale until the end of June 2024. The venue also provides a range of accessible seating that can be booked directly from the Box Office, as well as staging relaxed and captioned performances that ensure everyone feels welcome and comfortable when visiting the theatre.

We cannot wait to return to The Atkinson this Christmas with our ‘Sleeping Beauty’ panto. The audiences in Southport are so much fun and this year they can expect plenty of participation, festive flair, and spectacular storylines! We’ve got some magical surprises up our sleeve too…

Marie Kenny, Programme Manager, The Atkinson

Staging a Christmas pantomime allows us to engage with the local community across Sefton at the most wonderful time of the year. KD Theatre Productions Ltd blew our panto audiences away last year. I’m looking forward to working alongside KD to bring a spellbinding production of Sleeping Beauty to The Atkinson this Christmas.

Sleeping Beauty, Christmas Pantomime, 6-31 December 2024

Step into a winter wonderland and let the magic unfold as KD Theatre Productions (the team behind last year’s Jack and the Beanstalk) return to The Atkinson this Christmas with the enchanting pantomime Sleeping Beauty. This traditional family panto will captivate audiences of all ages. Oh yes it will!

In the kingdom of ‘Southportopia’ far, far away, a beautiful princess awaits her true love’s kiss to awaken her from a deep slumber. But beware! The wicked fairy Carabosse has cast a spell, and only the bravest heroes can break it. Will our valiant prince triumph over evil and save the day?

Get ready to boo, hiss, and cheer as our talented cast takes you on a magical ride through panto land. With spectacular costumes and scenery, toe-tapping tunes, and plenty of surprises along the way, this is one pantomime you won’t want to miss!
