About Sleeping Beauty. A King's Theatre, Glasgow preview.
KAREN Dunbar is remembering her very first entrance in the panto at the King's, Glasgow. It felt like she was covered in bubble wrap, she says. For all her experience doing karaoke and comedy, she had never performed anything quite like it. Her nerves made her dead to the world. That was in 2007, when she played Nanny Begood in Sleeping Beauty, a role she took to – nerves or not – like she was born to it. She matched the late Gerard Kelly laugh for laugh and turned in several songs to boot. She was right to be nervous because of the place the King's panto has in the hearts of Glasgow audiences but, in the end, she needn't have worried.
