Nothing beats a Royal Court Christmas show! Packed with stupid jokes, loads of live music and utterly inappropriate content we are proud to present… The Scouse Sleeping Beauty!

Just like our last few Christmas shows, this is deffo not for kids so treat yourselves to a babysitter and book in for a great night out!

Once upon a time there lay a land that was so beautiful that it was almost good enough to be a World Heritage Site! Over the last eighteen
months times had been hard as folk were not allowed to leave their homes unless they had lots of money. But one day the King brought joy to all the people as he announced the arrival of his baby daughter Ora! All of the villagers rejoiced!

Well, nearly all. The wicked fairy Maleffluent had evil plans in place for the princess so she slapped a curse on Ora that can only be broken by true love’s kiss. After a bit of time travel, an 18-year kip for Maleffluent and some serious wooing will Ora escape the evil fairy’s clutches?

Can the good people of Liverpool drive her back to the hellhole she came from (Manchester)? How many times will we make jokes about the council that might get us shut down?

The full cast is now confirmed as: Emma Grace Arends, Emma Bispham, Jamie Clarke, Michael Fletcher, Lindzi Germain, Hayley
Sheen, Andrew Schofield, Keddy Sutton and Liam Tobin. The creative team from The Scouse Cinderella and The Scouse Snow White are already hard at work.

The Christmas show is always a sell out so if you want the best seats then get booking now!
