Ever wondered where Pantomime villains go at the end of the story?

They go to Goodie-versity: the institute for reformed baddies, where Headmasters Beast and Belle teach them to be good. This Christmas Eve, the baddie class of 2021 are just one day away from their Gooduation when, DISASTER STRIKES…  Someone has sent Beast to sleep and he won’t wake up! And without Beast, there can be no Gooduation day!

With nearly everyone a suspect, we’re going to need your help to crack this Christmas case! 

The creators of Goldilocks & the Three Musketeers, Sleeping Trees, return with a brand new panto mash-up, full of songs, live music and interaction for all!

So grab your magnifying glass, put on your best detective hat and help Sleeping Trees solve this merry mystery.
