Meet the Cast of Sleeping Beauty

By Becky Martin

Now that rehearsals are underway for Sleeping Beauty it's time to get to know a little bit about the stars of this year's panto at Aylesbury Waterside!

Anita Dobson

Carabosse: The Wicked Fairy- AKA the boo-able baddie, to be avoided at all costs , for fear of casting mean spells upon those  who cross her path.

You will know her from: EastEnders, the  original Queen of the Square who also recently won the nation's hearts  in Strictly Come Dancing.

Panto Factoid: Anita's hubby is Queen's very own Brian May, just like him she's ready to rock you this Christmas!

Andy Collins

Chester the Jester: AKA  (in his own words) 'the short little fat buffoon', or to put it more politely, the funny one who'll have you rolling around the aisles

You'll know him from: being 'Mr Done-It-All' - from Shakespeare to stand-up, clubland to cabaret, MTV to CITV he's done it all - including presenting programs such as Family Fortunes, Garden SOS and The Alan Titchmarsh Show.

PantoFactoid: Andy is a local lad and this is his 3rd Waterside panto! Yes that's right, due to popular demand we keep begging him back, and it's fair to say we 'heart' him!

Holly Brewer

Sleeping Beauty:  AKA our leading lady and real life beautiful person. This girl has it all!

You'll know her from: being Buckinghamshire's favourite singer and songwriter, oh and if you joined us for Peter Pan last year, Holly played Wendy! Prepare to be mesmerised by her amazing singing voice.

Panto Factoid: Holly had the most homely dressing room last week - complete with a pink Christmas tree, cosy rug and the most adorable pair of dog slippers!
