Written by local author Andy Gribben, this version tells the story of a beautiful baby, the Princess Aurora.

Distaff, an evil fairy is enraged at not being invited to the christening and casts a magic spell that on her 18th birthday, Aurora will prick her finger on a spindle and fall into an endless sleep.

This year's production is very much a family affair as there will be three combinations of family members taking part - Annie and son Tom Eddington, mother Sara and daughter Abbi Harpur-Rowe, and Kerys Stephens and niece Jessie Pitts.

Sleeping Beauty starts on Saturday December 14 and runs until Saturday January 4.
