Nanny Knot needs your man!

Posted on 9 November 2012

Our panto Dame, Nanny Knot from Sleeping Beauty, is on the lookout for some courageous men to join her on the Main Stage this Christmas and assist with a birthday surprise for the Princess.

As she’s new to the area, this damsel in distress is asking the people of Coventry to nominate the men in their life to join her onstage with characters such as Josh the Jester, Muddles and Fairy Azuriel.

Nanny Knot 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.

Nanny Knot 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 and help me decorate a birthday cake for the Princess. 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 Nanny Knot, please nominate them by emailing the name of the person you would like to nominate, along with the details of 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 men won’t know a thing about it until Nanny Knot 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.

Sleeping Beauty will be playing on the Main Stage from Weds 28 Nov to Sat 5 Jan. Tickets are available now from the box office on 024 7655 3055 priced from £13.25 to £21.75 or via the website where cheaper tickets are available. Concessions and family tickets are also available.
