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
