Scottish Dames Seek Boyfriends for a Highland Fling!

Scottish Dames Seek Boyfriends for a Highland Fling!

Lock up your sons – the Ugly Sisters are on the hunt for boyfriends in Coventry this Christmas in the Belgrade Theatre pantomime, Cinderella, running on the Main Stage from Weds 22 Nov 2017 – Sat 13 Jan 2018.

Not ones to be kept under ‘loch’ and key, Dyspepsia and Listeria are looking for a no strings attached, Highland fling this festive season.

Having recently returned from a Cruise along the Clyde, these two single, Scottish step-sisters are desperate to find two willing partners to accompany them to the Royal Ball and partake in some on-stage romance!

Cinderella ticket holders can nominate their unsuspecting husbands, bosses, brothers, dads, colleagues and friends for a chance to appear on stage with the bonnie lassies… but be warned, things could get messy!

Lizzy and Pepsi have extremely high standards which means that all nominees should be aged 18 years or over, with a full bill of health and must be seated in the stalls of the auditorium.

The Ugly Sisters said, “As two very glamorous young ladies, we’re eager to find our fairytale prince to escort us to the Royal Ball and join us for lots of fun and mayhem in the Belgrade pantomime! We’ll even take them out for a double date and a deep fried mars bar after the show!”

“Our dream man would have the charm of Sean Connery mixed the good humour of David Tennant, with more courage than Mel Gibson in Braveheart to get up on stage with us. But we’re not fussy… anyone will do!”     

This wonderful rags-to-riches tale is guaranteed to delight all the family and bring a touch of magic and make-believe to your festive celebrations. Once again written and directed by Iain Lauchlan, this year’s panto will feature the spectacular sets, lavish costumes and sing-along-songs that make a trip to the Belgrade a truly unmissable Christmas treat.

If you know of male victims who are coming to see the show and aren’t afraid to let this pair handle their tattie scones, please nominate them by emailing the name of the person you would like to put forward, along with the time and date of the performance he will be attending to Steve Cressy at [email protected]

Please include ‘Panto Nomination’ in the subject line of your email. The person nominated must be sitting downstairs in the stalls so if possible, please provide the seat number or row he will be sitting in.

You can also submit your nomination by post. Title your letter ‘Panto Nomination’ and mark it for the attention of Steve Cressy, Company Stage Manager – then either send it to* The Belgrade Theatre, Belgrade Square, Coventry CV1 1GS, or hand it in at box office.

The (un)lucky man won’t know a thing about it until these delightful dames comes to find him during the show so this is the perfect opportunity to play a joke on a boss, wind-up your dad or simply get revenge on a friend!
