ESSPA Presents 'Sleeping Beauty'
Wednesday 1st to
Thursday 2nd

Evening shows 7:15pm, Matinee
De La Warr Pavillion. Bexhill.
Not sure how to entertain the family during the Easter Holidays?

Then come along to see ESSPA’s innovative musical production of the ‘Sleeping Beauty.’ With a large cast of talented young performers, this annual stage show has become a popular fixture in the De La Warr’s calendar.

A baby’s christening descends into chaos, when an irate guest casts a curse on the baby Aurora. At the age of 16 she falls into a sleep for 100 years. With the use of music, dance and film, the audience is transported through two world wars and much more. How does a young girl cope when waking to find a dramatically different world to the one she left a century before?

Find out, by bringing the whole family, young and old, to the De La Warr Pavilion, for performances on Wednesday 1st April at 7:15. and Thursday 2nd April at 2:30 and 7:15pm.
