Cinderella’s Ugly Sisters go on shopping spree in Spindles

Trumpy and Pumpy Squeezepocket, Cinderella’s Ugly Sisters in this year’s pantomime at Oldham Coliseum Theatre, had a great day out at Spindles Town Square Shopping Centre.

The pair were looking for an outfit to wear to Prince Charming’s ball, surprising shoppers and causing mischief and mayhem wherever they went.

Played by Simeon Truby and Fine Time Fontayne, the flatulent ‘Uglies’ drooled over diamonds in Earnest Jones, fought over stilettos that look remarkably like Cinderella’s crystal slippers in Debenhams and found their gowns in River Island.

The sisters were also fortunate enough to meet staff in the Debenhams cosmetic and beauty departments, who invited them along to their VIP event on Thursday 6 December.

Shoppers in the centre were also thrilled to see the pantomime stars as they strolled around the stores, taking selfies and saying hello to panto fans young and old.

Mike Flanagan, Centre Manager at Spindles Town Square Shopping Centre, commented: “It’s great to see the two Dames from the Coliseum Theatre pantomime appearing in the centre today.

“It goes to show the close relationship the two organisations have and shows the town centre working in partnership together.”

Each year the Coliseum serves up the perfect panto recipe – excellent actors, singers and dancers dishing out the very best in traditional fun that’s great for kids and grown-ups.

This year, Prince Charming is throwing a ball and everyone is invited! But it looks like poor Cinderella will be staying home alone, thanks to her Wicked Stepmother and two Ugly Sisters, Trumpy and Pumpy.

With the help of her best friend Buttons and a magical Fairy Godmother can Cinderella make it to the party on time?

Cinderella runs until Saturday, January 12 at Oldham Coliseum Theatre.Tickets can be booked by calling the Box Office on 0161 624 2829 or online at
