With the dust barely settled on the first run of Rapunzel, work has already started on next year’s Easter musical at the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage.

Following the weekend’s sold-out run of the fairy tale about the long-haired girl trapped in a tower, GCT creatives have confirmed that Sleeping Beauty The Musical will be next year’s Easter treat at the Lytton Way theatre.

With book, music and lyrics by the capable trio of musical director Phil Dennis, choreographer Khiley Williams and Gordon Craig artistic director Catherine Lomax, Sleeping Beauty will open on Thursday, March 29, 2018 and run until Easter Monday, April 2.

Executive producer Catherine said: “We will be writing our own adaptation of Sleeping Beauty, which we have already started work on and will be capturing the traditional elements of the classic fairy tale with the twists of a classic children’s musical.”

Standard tickets cost £17.50 and a family ticket for four £55 if booked and paid for by September 30, 2017.

Tickets are now on sale.
