Sleeping Beauty

Join Dowtcha for their wonderful Christmas pantomime, performed with life size puppets!

Winner of Cork's 'Miss Badness' competition for 10 years running, fairy Beastlyboots puts a curse on Sleeping Beauty, sending her to sleep for 100 years. Only a kiss from a handsome prince can save the day; but the prince thinks kissing is soppy, and his noble horse is more interested in eating bags of crisps then rescuing people!

Luckily the faeries at the bottom of the garden step in with their time travelling motor bike, but will it be enough to prevent Beastlyboots from ruining pantomimes for everyone?

This comic fairytale, written by Ian Wild, features 10 stunning live size puppets, original songs, and a cartoon style set, creating both an extremely funny and unique Christmas experience for all ages, young and old.
Dowtcha are Cork’s puppet specialists, best known for producing and touring high quality puppet shows and creating imaginative, large scale street theatre and spectacle work.
