Sleeping Beauty casting news .. 1 May 2024
Lee Mead stars in Sleeping Beauty - Darlington, Dec 2024 After a couple of weeks where news came thick and fast - summer in the city with another West End run, this time as Eddie Souther in Sister Act at the Dominion Theatre, autumn on the road for Lee and his band (and his fans!) with his The Best Of Me tour - it seems only fitting that this week should bring yet more news, this time of winter plans.

Announced via tweet this morning by producers, Crossroads Pantomimes, and the venue... I'm delighted that Lee will be donning his tights once more to play the Prince in Sleeping Beauty at Darlington Hippodrome.

The show also stars Hi-de-Hi! and panto legend Su Pollard (Carabosse) and features the return of much-loved comic Josh Benson and fabulous dame Jamie Jones, who are back for a second year following a triumphant season at the Hippodrome last Christmas. Further casting to be announced.

Crossroads Chief Executive, Michael Harrison, said:
"I am so excited to have Lee and Su with us in panto this year in Darlington. Every year Lee is a hit with audiences up and down the country wherever he performs, and Su is always a crowd pleaser who will bring her inimitable comic style to the show. The two of them together on stage, alongside the return of Josh and Jamie, is a recipe for a magical Christmas indeed."

While Programming and Development Director of Darlington Hippodrome, Heather Tarran-Jones, said:
"We're so thrilled the super talented Lee and bona fide panto legend Su will be making Darlington Hippodrome their home this Christmas. Along with the welcome return of Josh and Jamie, our audiences are in for a festive treat!"
