Don’t mess with the Nannas this Christmas at Hull Truck Theatre!

Have you booked your panto yet? ‘Sleeping Beauty’ is Hull Truck’s brilliant festive show, and Hull alumnus James Frewer, (BMus Music, 2009) is central to the creative production team. The Hull Alumni Association has a new partnership with Hull Truck, so we are delighted to share!


Sleeping Beauty, Friday 4 December – Saturday 9 January 2016
Tickets £12 – £18, Family and Group rates available

There’s a party at the palace and everyone’s invited. Only, someone’s been missed off the list and she’s not very happy about it! Our five magical Nannas spin the tale of Princess Briar Rose in this reawakening of a fairy-tale classic packed with music, song, dance and laughter. Has the King managed to destroy all the spinning wheels? Will the Prince be able to fight his way through the tangle of thorns? Or is the Princess set for a very long sleep? One thing’s for sure – the Nannas know best and they’re always in the mood for a party!

Hull Truck Theatre are delighted to present their enchanting and adventure packed Christmas production of Sleeping Beauty, running from Friday 4 December until Saturday 9 January 2016. From acclaimed children’s writer Mike Kenny and the team behind last year’s production of Cinderella, this is a visual feast for all the family.

Artistic Director Mark Babych has brought back many of the actor-musicians from last year’s hit show Cinderella. Annabel Betts, who played Cinderella, returns as Nanna Janine, Louise Shuttleworth plays Nanna Worrywart, Nicholas Goode plays Bad Nanna Sandra and Laurie Jamieson plays Nanna NooNoo. Harry Hamer (My Generation at West Yorkshire Playhouse, Sex and Docks and Rock & Roll by Red Ladder) joins the rest of the Nannas as Nanna Dorothy Pink.

Cinderella’s Musical Director James Frewer has composed an original score for Sleeping Beauty, which he will play on stage along with the cast. James has worked with several leading theatres including Hampstead Theatre and the Soho Theatre, as well as Hull Truck Theatre’s Associate Company Middle Child.
