    Katie Price will star in this year's spectacular panto Sleeping Beauty at the New Victoria Theatre Woking.

    Model, TV star, businesswoman and author, Price will bring some glitz and glamour, sharing the role of the Wicked Fairy with stalwart of stage and screen Anita Dobson.

    Katie Price will be starring as the Wicked Queen on performances from Friday 11 December until Sunday 27 December 2015. Anita Dobson will then take over the role, starring as the Wicked Queen on performances from Monday 28 December 2015 until Sunday 10 January 2016, with the exception of 10.30am on Saturday 2 January 2016.

    They will be joined by CBeebies favourite Ben Faulks aka Mr Bloom as our green fingered Prince Charming and South African funny man Alan Committie as Chester the Jester.

    Katie Price said; "I'm not sure who's more excited about my role in panto, me or the kids! They’re going to enjoy it so much seeing me up on stage, although they might find it strange that I'm being so evil. Sleeping Beauty is one of the kids favourite stories and I simply couldn't resist the opportunity. The people of Woking better watch out as I'm coming to getcha!"

    Renowned for playing the iconic role of Angie Watts in EastEnders, Anita Dobson said; "Pantomime is a great love of mine. Being on stage surrounded by sparkly scenery and costumes, working with a fantastic company and hearing the children in the audience having such a great time gives me such a buzz. I love the Wicked Fairy, a role I have played many times before and I can't wait to get that costume back on and start being bad again, I'll have all of those children booing and hissing in no time!"

    This fun-filled family adventure tells the tale of a beautiful princess who pricks her finger and falls into a deep sleep. Will her true love be able to awaken her and save the kingdom from this enchantment? Featuring traditional pantomime ingredients to delight audiences of all ages with glittering costumes, sensational songs, dazzling dance routines, and bags of audience participation guaranteed to keep you awake this Christmas!

    Sleeping Beauty will run at the New Victoria Theatre in Woking from Friday 11 December 2015 until Sunday 10 January 2016.
