The tragic tale of a young princess who’s tricked by an evil fairy and pricks her finger on a spinning wheel, causing her to sleep for 100 years, offers a great story around which to build a pantomime production of real quality. And judging by its festive offerings in previous years, the Regent’s 2019 presentation is likely to be just that.

‘Son of the Potteries’ Jonathan Wilkes dons the tights to take top billing in the ever-popular pantomime tale.

Homecoming hero Jonathan’s a festive fixture at the Regent Theatre nowadays, and is set to play an inevitably significant part in making Sleeping Beauty one of the region’s must-see pantos this Christmas.

Jonathan is joined by his faithful panto companion, Christian Patterson, who will be getting all frocked up to star as the Dame.
