Drag panto Sleeping Beauty to run in West End this December

A new drag pantomime production will open in London’s West End for 2023!

Sleeping Beauty will run at the Harold Pinter Theatre from Wednesday 27 – Sunday 31 December. Tickets are on sale now here.

The show is the third drag panto presented by TuckShop, the UK’s only specialist production company devoted all things drag.

Written by Soho and West End drag legend Miss Moppe, Sleeping Beauty will star RuPaul’s Drag Race UK favourites, Kitty Scott Claus (Masterchef, Death Drop, Drag Race UK) as ‘Princess Beauty’, LoUis CYfer (Death Drop, West End, Cowbois, RSC) as ‘King Clyde of Camden’, Yshee Black (Late Night Lycett, Channel 4, Dick Whittington, Phoenix Theatre) as ‘Muddles’, Kemah Bob (It’s a Sin: After Hours, Death Drop, Comedy Central Live) as ‘Prynx Handsome of Hackney’, Victoria Scone (Drace Race Canada vs the World, Drag Race, Death Drop Back in the Habit) as ‘Carabosse’, Ophelia Love as ‘Ensemble Member’, plus season 5 breakout Queens Michael Marouli and Kate Butch (Drag Queens vs Zombies- sold out Edinburgh sensation) as ‘Fairy Fabulous’ and ‘Queen Camilla of Camden’.

Far far away, Princess Aurora is under a cruel spell to sleep for 100 years…or is she just hungover and lazy… you decide. Will the evil Carabosse win the day, or will the dashing, suave, and ever so horny Prince Charming save the day, slay the competition, and save our Princess?!

This ridiculous retelling of the sleepiest princess in all the land will have you laughing out loud, singing along, and wondering just WHO is behind you.

On returning to a TuckShop production Victoria Scone said: “So thrilled to be rejoining TuckShop theatrical universe once again with such an exciting camp cast on this production of Sleeping Beauty!”

Kitty-Scott Claus added: “Super dooper excited to play a role where I get to really show the audience what I do best… sleeping and being beautiful.”

And Michal Marouli, a newcomer to TuckShop, enthused: “Geordie lass landing on the West End! I’m so happy to be joining Tuckshop to make my West End debut with Sleeping Beauty this December! It’s going to be a ball!”
