What could be more Christmassy than taking your kids to see a panto?
Greenwich Theatre is going for Sleeping Beauty this year, but at the time of writing there's no news about who'll be playing Sleeping Beauty. And there's no news about who'll 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 probably just about get away without the handsome prince because all he does is kiss her and wake her up -- you could substitute him for an alarm clock.
If it lives up to last year's Robinson Crusoe then it should be the perfect family treat.
