The Kennett Amateur Theatrical Society, Inc. (KATS) was created to stage an annual pantomime in the British style (in mid-January) and also do an improvisational murder mystery (during Kennett Square’s First Friday Art Stroll in August) as well as other entertainments periodically.
2018 British Panto – Sleeping Beauty
“Sleeping Beauty and the Tangley Wood” – January 26 (7:30pm) & 27 (2:00pm & 7:30pm)
KATS, Inc. invites you to our annual British Panto – the second longest-running British Pantomime in America!
Princess Rosa’s family offends Specula, the wicked fairy, who derives her power from the ever expanding Tangley Wood. Specula puts a spell on Princess Rosa that can only be broken by the kiss of a “noble man”. After sleeping for 100 years the spell is broken, by Jack, a penniless yoeman, and Rosa discovers she has lost everything that matters: family, friends and (thanks to Specula) her fortune. Rosa responds by lashing out at the very people who rescued her from the spell. Will Rosa’s inner beauty ever emerge, will the Tangley wood eventually choke the entire kingdom, will Specula rule the world? See the pantomime and find out! Tickets on sale now!
