Suitable for All Groups
An updated version of Dave Buchanan's classic script. Princess Melody is struck down on her eighteenth birthday by evil witch Grotte the Grim and doomed to sleep for a hundred years.
The Kingdom of Kirkconia celebrates the birth of three royal children but makes the mistake of not inviting Grotte the Grim, the evil witch of the South West. Eighteen years later Grotte takes a terrible revenge and Princess Melody and the whole court fall asleep. In this delightful new version, however, the Princess's two brothers William and Rupert do not fall asleep. With the help of a good fairy, they are joined by suitor Prince Charlie in an epic quest to track down Grotte and cancel her evil spell. A pantomime that is lively, inventive, and ideal for a young, teenage cast.
