NEWS: GLASGOW THEATRE COMPANY ENLIST HELP OF BIG BROTHER NARRATOR MARCUS BENTLEY TO BRING SOHO CINDERS TO THE STAGE
Mad Props Theatre, the group behind 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and the Scottish Premiere of Carrie the Musical are back, but this time they’ve brought the voice of Marcus Bentley along for the ride.
Known most famously for his voiceover work on Big Brother, Marcus Bentley is helping Mad Props Theatre in their fifth year bring the deliciously camp and naughty Soho Cinders to the stage at Websters Theatre.
The Narrator of Soho Cinders has been played by Stephen Fry and Sandi Toksvig in the past, but Marcus Bentley was at the top of Mad Props Theatre’s list from the get go.
The cast of Soho Cinders were thrilled by the news, especially Dominic Spencer playing impoverished student Robbie.
“As a die hard Big Brother fan, I couldn’t be more thrilled that the iconic voice of Big Brother is narrating our show, especially as he’s a fellow Geordie!”
They’re inviting you to head to the ball from 1-4 November 2017 and take a journey to the West End of London where Soho Cinders celebrates the capital’s most colourful district.
A modern retelling of Cinderella, this satirical twist on the classic will see James and Robbie’s worlds collide forcing them to fight for their own fairy-tale ending.
The potent mix of politics, sex-scandals and true love come together in this contemporary musical with an infectious score that delivers a message of self-acceptance—and personal responsibility, rooted in musical comedy traditions.
Soho Cinders will be performed at Websters Theatre from the 1 - 4 November 2017. Tickets from £12 are available from www.webstersglasgow.com
