It’s the 503 Christmas Panto (oh yes it is!)… we’re bringing back the timeless(ish) classic that is the Sleeping Trees’ Cinderella and the Beanstalk… with a difference.
The Trees themselves will finally be filming Pantomime the Movie so they are helping us reboot the script and we’re very excited to announce that this year’s cast will be ALL FEMALE.
Follow Cinderella on a perilous adventure as the scheming Rumpelstiltskin blackmails the would-be princess into retrieving the coveted Golden Eggs from the top of The Beanstalk. She must complete her quest to recover her glass slipper, but Prince Charming, the Fairy Godmother and Jack’s pregnant cow are all doing their best to get in the way, so her mission might not be quite as easy as she thought…
The Sleeping Trees
Described by Time Out as "the birth child of Monty Python and The League of Gentlemen", the Sleeping Trees are a trio of comedy writers and performers. Formed in 2009 at the University of Chichester, the company has made nine full-length shows to date, including two family pantomimes; Cinderella and the Beanstalk (Theatre503 & The Old Market) and Scrooge and the Seven Dwarves (Theatre503).
The company have just finished an extensive UK Tour of Sleeping Trees at the Movies; a trilogy of shows (Mafia, Western and Sci-Fi) parodying Gangster, Spaghetti Western and Science Fiction film genres, accompanied by a live band. They are currently touring their 10th production, which premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival August 2018, before heading to Adelaide and Melbourne in February and March 2019. Alongside live performance they are currently developing their Sci-Fi script for television.
