Why Retired Dame Berwick Will Write Sleeping Beauty Panto For Theatre Royal


By Charles  Hutchinson in The Press.


Berwick Kaler may have exited pantomime stage left in February, but the grand old dame of York Theatre Royal is taking up the call to write the script for Sleeping Beauty this coming winter.

“When I said on the last night, ‘if they ask me, I’ll be back like a shot’, what I really meant was I’d be back on stage like a shot,” said the newly retired dame. “But this is more like an air rifle shot, because the ‘rubbish’ I write, whatever it is, is rather unique in as much as the artists I’ve groomed for the Theatre Royal panto, the artists I’ve shared my career with, to me they are the best team going, and they don’t want to take the risk of anyone else writing for them.”
