Gentlemen beware - Trinny and Susannah are poised to give you a new look.

Gentlemen beware - Trinny and Susannah are poised to give you a new look.

Oh no it’s not telly’s makeover queens who will be doing the business, but oh yes it is a pair of colourful panto siblings.

Trinny and Susannah are the names of the Ugly Sisters in a production of Cinderella which Bradwell’s Centenary Players will stage next week.

Producer Marilyn Harrison said: “We will be picking men in the audience to give them a new look for 2013 by dressing them in hats and scarfs.”

The Ugly Sisters will be played by Ian Jarvis and Phil Granby in a show which promises to be a fun-filled, colourful riot for all the family.

Karen Joseph plays the title role and Charlotte Humphrey is Prince Charming in the show which includes 16 performers and a junior chorus.

Linda Wain, who is cast as Queen Prudence, has acted in 18 of the group’s 19 pantos while several members of backstage and front of house teams have been involved in every one.

The pantos are performed at Bradwell Memorial Hall where the stage has to be extended by two metres and scenery lighting and curtains erected during the weekend before the production.

All the panto trappings have to be taken down afterwards and stored away because the hall is used by other groups.

Formed to coincide with the centenary celebrations for Bradwell St Barnabas Church in 1968, the first play performed was JB Priestley’s When We Are Married. The vicar at the time, Rev Caney, was a member of the cast.

The society used to put on two full-length plays each year but during the early 1990s decided to concentrate resources on performing pantomimes.

Cinderella runs from February 20 to February 23 at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee at 2pm. Tickets cost £5 (adult) and £4 (child, OAP). available from Bradwell Post Office.
