Imagine Theatre and The Core at Corby Cube have announced their first ever drag panto Sleeping Beauty, starring Ru Paul’s Drag Race favourite Divina De Campo, Lola Lasagne and Don One. The production runs from Friday 17 to Friday 31 December.
A seasoned British drag queen known for her fabulous high soprano and 4-octave vocal range, Divina De Campo has featured on The Voice, All Together Now and most recently on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Divina is currently touring the UK in Chicago the Musical.
Lola Lasagne, one of the most successful and popular drag queens on the UK circuit, 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.
Hugely popular drag king and West End star (Death Drop), Don One who will be playing the deliciously dashing Prince Eric.
Laura Taylor, associate producer and Head of Celebrity Casting at Imagine Theatre said, “Not to be mistaken for an adult pantomime, with our casting of Sleeping Beauty we hope to celebrate and showcase the fantastically popular Drag artists in the UK in a traditional Pantomime. 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!”
