A drama group will add some modern twists into a timeless Disney tale next month.

The Cheddar Stage Society hope to wow audiences in their winter production of Sleeping Beauty.

The show will follow tradition but the society promise to include some comical gags and funny anecdotes.

Dame Nurse Penny Cillin is looking after Princess Aurora to make sure she does not fulfil the prophecy and prick her finger but Poison Ivy, the wicked fairy, does what she can to get in the way.

The society is a well-established long-running group which currently works towards producing a show a year, alternating between pantomimes and entertainment evenings.

Sleeping Beauty will be at Cheddar Village Hall, in Church Street, at 7.30pm on February 2-3. There will be a 2.30pm matinee on February 3. Buy tickets, priced £5-7.50, from Deane & Sons, in Bath Street.
