If you want laugh-out-loud moments, fantastic all-singing, all-dancing numbers and a cast who really put other panto performers in the shade – Sleeping Beauty at the Towngate Theatre, Basildon is a MUST-SEE! … There may be silly humour throughout but it’s the toe-tapping dance numbers, which had the audience singing along, such as a Schools Out Medley (Brick In The Wall/Hit Me Baby One More Time/Schools Out For Summer) which certainly scored top marks in the energetic School Room scene. Tender moments too really encapsulated the fairytale love story including solos sung by Zac Hamilton and Aimee Barrett which were note perfect and full of emotion, including a fantastic rendition of James Arthur’s hit number one single Say You Won’t Let Go.
