Reviews for Sleeping Beauty;
★★★★★ - "Writers Fraser Boyle, who also plays the dame, and Ken Alexander, who also directs, deliver a Sleeping Beauty that chimes beautifully with the present, while harking back to the Gaiety’s past as a centre for variety…The use of dialect, the jokes, the references and the songs are perfectly pitched for the venue and its audience.”
Thom Dibdin, The Stage
★★★★ - "Ayr Gaiety once again shows it’s not afraid to take risks in this bold and refreshing take on one of panto’s most loved fairytales. This in-house production really pushes the boundaries of what’s possible on Scotland’s smaller stages, showcasing the very best Ayrshire patter with a healthy dollop of magic and romance for good measure… Ayr’s Gaiety theatre will remain the one to watch for new and innovative ways to deliver a modern pantomime to audiences in Scotland.”
Fraser MacDonald, Braw Theatre
“Conventional in format but cleverly 'Scottified' and modernised by Fraser Boyle and Ken Alexander… clever material, stunning sets and outstanding performances."
Dr Stephen Langston, The Guardian
