Witty, topical, traditional & hilariously queer.

What's a little prick between friends?

The kingdom of Slutvia awaits you, dear weary traveler, and wishes to tell you the camptastic story of Prince Beauty. Brought to you by theatre company He's Behind You! (the team formerly known as Above The Stag) the absurd and uproariously hilarious panto is written by Martin Hooper and John Bradfield, who is also the creative mind behind all the songs. The most feared panto dame in the biz is taking on the role of the prowling Queen Gertrude, and the show will be directed by ATS alum Andrew Beckett. Loved by Ian McKellen and Graham Norton, you know you can't go wrong, so get your tickets now for the eleganza drag extravaganza that is Sleeping Beauty Takes A Prick!

What's it about?

Sleeping Beauty is desperate to find a man, when wandering the palace gardens he takes a prick (oo-er!) and wakes up in modern times with his man-crazy monarch of a mother. How will they find the men of their dreams and simultaneously save their kingdom? We're not sure, but we've heard that Grindr might have something to do with it...
