Scone commented: “So thrilled to be rejoining TuckShop theatrical universe once again with such an exciting camp cast on this production of Sleeping Beauty!”

Scott-Claus added: “Super dooper excited to play a role where I get to really show the audience what I do best… sleeping and being beautiful.”

And finally, Marouli said: “Geordie lass landing on the West End! I’m so happy to be joining Tuckshop to make my West End debut with Sleeping Beauty this December! It’s going to be a ball!”
