Hello and welcome to pantsoc.co.uk

January 2004.

Put together in quick fast time, Sleeping Beauty was our first ever Panto! Central Hall was the venue for York’s inaugral student Pantomime and it was a hoot! The King and Queen get over their difficulties in the bedroom to procure a daughter – “Belladonna”, meaning “beautiful kebab”. However, the King’s evil Aunt the Wicked Witch of the East End put a curse on Belladonna – when she felt a little prick on her 18th Birthday she would die! Thanks to help from the High Druid the spell was changed so she only fell asleep. 18 years later the inevitable happened and the Witch took over the Kingdom and turned it into a land of villainous lechery. Eventually, two nobles, Prince Smarming and Sir Prize awoke Sleeping Beauty and helped her and her family defeat the evil Witch to reclaim the Kingdom. Hooray!
