THEATRE FUN: Family fun musical ‘Not So Ugly sisters’ visits Leeds Playhouse

THEATRE FUN: Family fun musical ‘Not So Ugly sisters’ visits Leeds Playhouse

Join Leeds Playhouse next week for a fun new family musical that takes a sideways look at the story of Cinderella from the perspective of the ‘Not So’ Ugly Sisters.

Dolly rests on her broom counting the passers-by outside the salon window, while her sister Barb watches the phone that never rings. It’s the morning of Cindy and Prince Smarming’s big royal wedding – but Dolly and Barb are not invited. Hell hath no fury like a hairdresser scorned!

Leeds actors Daisy Ann Fletcher and Lucy Rafton star as the hairdressing step-sisters of Cinderella. Daisy, a Leeds Playhouse Youth Theatre alumni, returns to the Playhouse following roles as in Cinderfella, Alice in Weegieland (Tron Theatre), and Pinocchio (Birmingham Old Rep). Lucy most recently worked with Unsung Collective and Lisa Holdsworth creating the foundations for a new immersive play about roller derby.

Elvi Piper, Artistic Director of Wrongsemble, said: “We're so delighted to be finally able to fully realise this production of THE NOT SO UGLY SISTERS and share it with the families of Leeds as part of Leeds Playhouse's incredible season of work to welcome back audiences. We hope you'll be dancing in your seats – at a safe distance!"

The creative team includes: Designer Anthony Jones (designer and maker at Wrongsemble); Claire-Marie Seddon (Musical Director / Composer); Dan McGlade (Sound Design and Production); Chemeana Lacey (Creative Producer).

Created by Leeds-based theatre company Wrongsemble in co-production with Leeds Playhouse and Red Ladder Theatre Company, the show, which was due to have its world premiere last year, shows how there are always two sides to every story.
