On the day of a Princess's christening Carabosse the dark fairy curses the child with a spell; that by midnight of her 18th birthday she shall prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die!
A good fairy reduces this curse to a 100 years sleep - but only a Prince with love's first kiss can be the one break the spell.
This Prince is joined by some hapless helpers as he goes off on a magical rescue mission. But it won't be easy - Carabosse is out to stop them! Will our heroes save the day - or is the Princess sentenced to sleep for a century?
One thing you can be sure of is it's a Dreams n Wishes Panto - so expect songs, steps and silliness a-plenty!
It's the dreamiest Panto of them all!
"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek..."

Throw in a short tempered bad guy, a biscuit with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got an irresistible mix of adventure, laughter and romance, guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages!
