Dame Trott seeks men for Prickly Bottom Bake Off!

Posted on 20 November 2013

Our very own Dame Trott, from Jack and the Beanstalk is asking the people of Coventry to nominate their men to join her on stage in the village of Prickly Bottom to help make lemon meringue pies during the show.

Dame Trott can be quite fussy when it comes to men though, so they need to be over 18 years of age and fit and healthy. Most importantly, they need to have a good sense of humour and be willing to get up on stage during the show.

Dame Trott said, “I’m searching for a good looking hunk, well, a fairly attractive male, OK, any man who can stand and breathe on his own! Please help me by nominating your boyfriend, husband, dad, workmate or boss to come up on stage to help make lemon meringue pies and save the dairy for our beloved village Prickly Bottom. They have to be a good sport though as it may get messy!”

If you know of any men that are coming to see the show and who would be brave enough to lend a hand to Dame Trott, please nominate them by emailing their name and the time and date of the performance he will be attending to Steve Cressy at Please put ‘Panto Nomination’ in the subject line of your email. The person nominated must be sitting downstairs in the stalls so if possible, please provide the seat number or row he will be sat in.

You can also submit your nomination by post. Title your letter ‘Panto Nomination’ and mark it for the attention of Steve Cressy, Company Stage Manager – then either send it to The Belgrade Theatre, Belgrade Square, Coventry CV1 1GS, or hand it in at box office.

The (un)lucky man won’t know a thing about it until Dame Trott comes to find him during the show so this is the perfect opportunity to play a joke on a boss, wind-up your dad or simply get revenge on a friend!

Jack and the Beanstalk will run on the Main Stage from 27 Nov to 5 Jan. Tickets are available from the Box Office on 024 7655 3055 or online where cheaper tickets are available.
