REDDITCH Palace Theatre has announced that award-winning Ugly Sisters, Dean Horner and Oliver Gray will join the line-up of its Christmas pantomime, Cinderella.

The duo won Best Ugly Sisters at the prestigious Great British Pantomime Awards 2016/17 for their outstanding performance in Cinderella at Derby Arena, produced by the same team behind Redditch Palace Theatre’s annual pantomime.

With more than a decade’s experience working together as ‘sisters’ Lav and Lou, Dean and Oliver have built an enviable reputation as the “baddest” sisters around with their outrageously flamboyant costumes and delightfully despicable treatment of poor Cinders garnering the biggest boos in Pantoland.

Dean and Oliver join the previously announced Emmerdale actress Sapphire Elia in the title role of Cinderella and comedian, The Man They Call G, who returns to play Buttons after proving a hit with Redditch audiences as Wishee Washee in last year’s Aladdin.

Pantomime producer Paul Holman said: “Dean and Oliver will have audiences crying with laughter and booing for all their worth as dastardly divas Lav and Lou burst onto the Redditch stage.”

Cinderella runs at Redditch Palace Theatre from December 9 to January 5.

Tickets are on sale now and can be booked online at or via the box office on 01527 65203.
