The cast of SLEEPING BEAUTY and Her Winter Knight features Disney Recording Artist Olivia Holt as "Aurora" (Disney's "I Didn't Do It"), Lucy Lawless as "Carabosse" ("Xena: Warrior Princess," "Spartacus"), Garrett Clayton as "The Prince of Alhambra" (Disney's "Teen Beach Movie"), Patrick Cassidy as "The King of Pasadena" (Broadway's "42nd Street," "Annie Get Your Gun," ABC Family's "Ruby & The Rockits"), David Engel as "Nanny Tickle" (Broadway's "La Cage aux Folles," "Seussical"), Tamyra Gray as "The Good Fairy" ("American Idol," Broadway's "Bombay Dreams" and "Rent") and returning from last year's Panto at the Playhouse production of Aladdin and His Winter Wish, Ben Giroux as "Silly Billy" (CW's "Hart of Dixie).

SLEEPING BEAUTY and Her Winter Knight plays through January 4, 2015 at The Pasadena Playhouse.

Also returning from last year's hugely successful Panto at The Playhouse production of Aladdin and His Winter Wish, is director Bonnie Lythgoe ("So You Think You Can Dance"), choreographer Spencer Liff (Emmy nominee "So You Think You Can Dance") and musical director Michael Orland ("American Idol"). The book is by Kris Lythgoe, scenic and costume design by Lythgoe Family Productions, and the LFP producers include Kris Lythgoe, Bonnie Lythgoe, Becky Lythgoe and Jason Haigh Ellery.

Lythgoe Family Productions produces fun, musical theatre the whole family can enjoy. Known for their creativity and involvement in television hits "American Idol" and "So You Think You Can Dance," the Lythgoes are dedicated to bringing affordable theatre to families across America. Based on the Grimm fairytales, each story has been modernized with topical scripts for parents and well known pop songs for kids. The Lythgoes pride themselves on creating a memorable experience a family can share together. Past Panto at The Playhouse productions include: A Snow White Christmas starring Ariana Grande and Neil Patrick Harris and Aladdin and His Winter Wish starring Ben Vereen, Bruce Vilanch, and Ashley Argota.

An updated version of the classic Grimm fairytale, in the style of a traditional British family Panto, SLEEPING BEAUTY and Her Winter Knight is a singing and soaring winter adventure that features family-friendly magic, with a comedic twist, dancing (with "So You Think You Can Dance" alumni), interaction with the audience and contemporary music from Jessie J's "Domino" to John Legend's "All Of Me," Pharrell Williams "Happy" to Survivor's "Eye of The Tiger" and more. A Panto is known for its interactive style and humor that appeals to everyone from ages 2 - 102! "Those who have never been to a panto will have a glorious introduction to the forum." - Los Angeles Times.
