A Very Very Bad Cinderella heads to The Other Palace this Christmas

A new twist on the classic fairytale of Cinderella will take over The Other Palace this Christmas.

Full of filthy festive fun, A Very Very Bad Cinderella runs from 1 December 2023 to 7 January 2024 at The Other Palace Studio. Tickets are on sale now here.

The piece, suitable for those aged 16+, is written by Neil Hurst (Tracks, Dating for Dogs, The Government Inspector) and Jodie Prenger (Coronation Street, I’d Do Anything).

The cast will feature Veronica Green (Seasons 2&3 of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK) as Fanny, Imelda Warren-Green (Kathy and Stella Solve a Murder) as Vajayjay, May Tether (Heathers The Musical) as Cinderella, and Keanna Bloomfield (making her professional debut) as Buttons / Prince Charming.

Tired of the same old Cinderella story? We’ve read the book and endured many a dodgy pantomime version. But who do we really go to see? You know who they are, those ‘Ugly B**ches who have us in stitches’. We love them, we hate them… the filthy tramps.

This is the ‘Real’ Cinderella story direct from the mucky mouths of the “ladies” that were there. So, lock up your Sons, and all of your Misters, Look out London, it’s the UGLY SISTERS.

Featuring loads of songs lovingly ripped off from the repertoire of those West End Wendy’s. You think you know the story of precious little Cinderella? Think again!

The production is directed by Lizzy Connolly, with set and costume design from Reuben Speed, lighting design by Jack Weir, video design by Sam Diaz, sound design by Rob Atkinson, and musical direction by Lauren Hopkinson.

The Other Palace Artistic Director, Paul Taylor-Mills, said “We are delighted to carry on our newly established tradition of deliciously naughty Christmas Capers in the Studio after the sold-out success of Ghosted – Another F***ing Christmas Carol last year.

A Very Very Bad Cinderella is sure to make us laugh and blush at the same time!”
