Olivia Holt to Star as Sleeping Beauty at the Pasadena Playhouse


oliviaholt-sleepingbeauty-102314Sleeping Beauty is making its way to the Pasadena Playhouse this holiday season.

Following last year’s “Aladdin & His Winter Wish,” this year’s show will put a new spin on the classic story of Sleeping Beauty. Sleeping Beauty and Her Winter Knight will star Olivia Holt as “Aurora,” Lucy Lawless as “Carabosse,” David Engel as “Nanny Tickle,” Tamyra Gray as “The Good Fairy,” and returning from last year’s Panto at the Playhouse production, Ben Giroux as “Silly Billy.”

The show is an updated version of the classic Grimm fairytale, in the style of a traditional British family Panto. The show will feature adventure, family-friendly magic with a comedic twist, dancing, a live pony, interaction with the audience and contemporary music from Jessie J’s “Domino” to John Legend’s “All Of Me,” Pharrell Williams “Happy” to Survivor’s “Eye of The Tiger” and more.

Before every performance, guests and their families are invited to enjoy a “Winter Wonderland” event in The Playhouse’s Engemann Family Courtyard, complete with holiday carolers, crafts, activities, games, Santa Claus and photo opportunities.
