Playing Sleeping Beauty will be Amy Thompson, who is presenter on Channel 5’s morning children’s show, Milkshake!
Joining the battle of good versus evil will be Sarah Jane Buckley, the Good Fairy.Sarah Jane is known for her role as Kathy Barnes in Hollyoaks as well as co-producing the touring show, Songbird: the Story of Eva Cassidy.
