Cast -- (the cast may change on different dates) Maureen Lipman, Chris Jarvis

What could be more Christmassy than taking your kids to see a panto?

Richmond Theatre is going for "Sleeping Beauty" this year, with Maureen Lipman as the Wicked Fairy. CBeebies' Chris Jarvis will be taking on the role of Chester the Jester, but at the time of writing there's no news about who'll be playing Sleeping Beauty. And there's no news about who's going to be playing the handsome prince, either...

Let's hope they don't forget to cast them, because you can't do Sleeping Beauty without Sleeping Beauty. You can just about get away without the handsome prince, though, because all he does is kiss her and wake her up -- you could substitute him for an alarm clock.

They're promising lots of sumptuous sets, gorgeous costumes, big song and dance routines with some knockout gags, and bags of audience participation. If it lives up to last year's 'Cinderella' then it should be the perfect family treat for Christmas.
