However cold and grey it may be outside, SEQUINS ON MY BALCONY, the show ‘kicking cancer’s ass with laughter’, will be adding some winter sparkle to to North Shore Theatre, Sunderland, on Sunday 1st February 2015, as part of an afternoon of dance, drama and comedy.
Prepare yourself for a surreal and surprising journey spanning Hoochie Coochie Girls, hospital corridors, the banks of the Nile and the boudoir of Mata Hari. It's a triumph of sequins, sisterhood and settling for nothing less than a sparkling life.
The event is supporting Just Because, a UK-based charity supporting women with breast cancer in Egypt and Annie's Dreams, an local group fundraising for breast cancer charities.
Tickets are £10 /£8 concessions (£1 per ticket will be shared equally between the two charities)
