He will be joined by Bispham-born soap actress Hayley Tamaddon, who is best known for playing Del Dingle in Emmerdale and Andrea Beckett in Coronation Street. In Sleeping Beauty, she stars as the Good Fairy who fights against the dark powers of the evil witch, Carabosse.

The classic fairytale follows the story of a beautiful princess who falls into a deep sleep after pricking her finger on a cursed spinning wheel – and can only be awoken by true love’s kiss.

Tickets for the show start at £22 each, with discounts available for children and concessions, and can be bought HERE.
