Ugly Sisters have a Ball in Poole!

Panto dames Miles Western and Jay Worthy, who star as the Ugly Sisters in this year’s Lighthouse pantomime Cinderella, caused chaos in Poole’s Dolphin Shopping Centre this weekend.

The gruesome twosome first invaded Clarks shoe shop to rummage through the new season selection in the search for the perfect-fitting shoe. Trying on shoes proved to be thirsty work, and a visit to Starbucks resulted in the pair aiding and abetting the baristas as they served coffees, before embarking on an impromptu spot of bag shopping in Beales and a pitstop to check out the latest accessories in Claire’s. The scheming siblings rounded off their visit to the town with a bit of train spotting at the level crossing in the High Street, where they climbed the railway bridge to get a view of the town and wave to passers-by.

John Grinnell, centre manager at the Dolphin Shopping Centre, commented: “The Ugly Sisters had a great time visiting the shopping centre this weekend. They continued their search to find glass slippers with the perfect fit and recovered with a caffeinated pick-me-up in Starbucks. We look forward to this year’s pantomime Cinderella which will enjoy a four-week run at Lighthouse and wish all the cast the very best of luck.”

Co-produced by Lighthouse and Duncan Reeves Productions (led by actor and eighties Blue Peter presenter Peter Duncan and musical director Darren Reeves), the rest of Cinderella’s all-star cast will be announced later this a304cad8433197912b999604b88aacaa.jpgweek.

Cinderella enjoys a four-week run at Lighthouse from Friday 8 December 2017 to Saturday 6 January 2018. Tickets are on sale now from the Lighthouse ticket office, by phone on 01202 280000 or online at
