WHITNEY and Britney are making a huge comeback performance at the Hippodrome, Great Yarmouth this month, and there are still a few tickets available for the shows.

Admittedly the two larger than life figures are not looking quite as good as they did in their heyday, but they still have pretty amazing voices with megastar personalities to match.

But were you thinking of Spears and Houston? These are the infamous sisters Britney and Whitney Harduppe of Harduppe Manor, who are desperately trying to win their ways into the heart and wallet of the eligible bachelor Prince Charming or any man that will have them.

Cinderella is in its last stages of rehearsal with less than two weeks to go until curtain-up, and the two beautiful Harduppe sisters have been trying on their best frocks ready to stun and thrill the audiences. The Uglies are played by Nick Funnell and Darren Calder, who will be encouraging the audience to side with them rather than their downtrodden stepsister Cinderella.

The pantomime is full of popular songs, fabulous dance numbers and plenty of traditional panto humour and is being directed by Nick Ball. He has previously directed several shows for the company including Oklahoma and Oliver as well as the last production of Cinderella that the company staged in the 1990s.

Cinderella will be performed nightly at the Hippodrome, Great Yarmouth from Wednesday, January 21 to Saturday, January 24 at 7.30pm, with matinees on Saturday, 24 and Sunday, 25 at 2.30pm.

Tickets are now on sale from the Hippodrome Box Office, 01493 844172, or book online at www.hippodromecircus.co.uk .
