Wakey, Wakey! The Christmas show of your dreams is just around the corner and it’s a show not to be missed, as Ru Paul’s Drag Race favourite Divina De Campo leads the cast of Corby’s first ever drag pantomime as the evil Carabosse in Sleeping Beauty from Friday 17 to Friday 31 December.
A seasoned British drag queen known for her fabulous high soprano and 4-octave vocal range, Divina has featured on national television programmes including The Voice, All Together Now and most recently a finalist on the first season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Divina is currently touring the UK in Chicago The Musical and can’t wait to be turning on her bad girl persona for the role this Christmas.
“I am so excited to be appearing in Sleeping Beauty at The Core this Christmas. I love what the producers are doing by colliding the world of drag and pantomime in a show that celebrates the LGBTQ+ community. Drag is for everyone, and this show proves it. I am going to be wickedly fabulous so watch out Corby, DDC is coming to get you!”
Joining Divina will be drag legend Lola Lasagne, one of the most successful and popular drag queens on the UK circuit. Lola will be “whipping her hair back and forth” as Nanny Lola, looking after Princess Beauty whilst dealing with the tempers, tantrums and traumas caused by Carabosse – the most wicked fairy in the land.
And that’s not all! The show’s producers, Imagine Theatre, are thrilled to announce that joining those two fantastic queens will be hugely popular drag king and West End star (Death Drop), Don One who will be playing the deliciously dashing Prince Eric.
With fabulous sets, glamorous costumes and more sequins than Strictly, it’s going to be camp, it’s going to be glitzy and audiences will ‘sashay away’ into the night with huge smiles on their faces. With a suggested age guidance of 12+ this is a fabulously festive show with just a little more sass!
Sleeping Beauty takes place at The Core at Corby Cube from Friday 17 – Friday 31December. Tickets start from £10, for more information and to book tickets go to ww.thecorecorby.com or call
