Cinderella, a drag pantomime extravaganza comes to Trafalgar Studios this Christmas starring RuPaul’s Drag Race star Baga Chipz and Britain’s Got Talent icon Sheila Simmonds.
Drag stars Baga Chipz – currently on screen as one of the contestants in BBC Three’s RuPaul’s Drag Race UK – and Sheila Simmonds– best known from her outrageous performance that wowed the judges in Britain’s Got Talent 2019 – will star in a fierce and funny drag makeover of classic pantomime Cinderella this Christmas, playing at the Trafalgar Studios in the West End for six performances only.
Produced by TuckShop – the UK’s only specialist production company devoted all things drag – Cinderella is written and directed by Stuart Saint (De Profundis, Saucy Jack at the Space Vixens, Misfit Warrior), and will also star drag performers Kemah Bob, Ophelia Love, Veronica Green, Baby and Holly Stars.
This age-old rags-to-riches story is being dragged up for London, so dust off your glass stripper-slippers, give your carriage a rub down, and join us as the clock strikes midnight for the Fairy Godmother of pantomimes…
Will she make it to the Ball? Only if she has a good gag reflex…
