A CHRISTMAS show coming to Sale Waterside is one the best in the UK, according to a national newspaper.

The Not So Ugly Sisters was included in a list of this year's top 25 shows by The Guardian earlier in the week.

A co-production by Yorkshire's Leeds Playhouse, Red Ladder and Wrongsemble, The Not So Ugly Sisters is 'a funny, fast-paced, family show' inspired by Cinderella.

Around one hour long, with no interval, it follows hairdressers Barb and Dolly on the day of their sister Cindy's wedding to Prince Smarming.

Elvi Piper, artistic director at Wrongsemble, said: "We're thrilled to bring The Not So Ugly Sisters to the brilliant Waterside this festive season.

"We've been waiting for two years to entertain the good people of Manchester with this ultimate family feel-good festive feast of a show which has something in it for everyone. Theatre is back with a bang and we can't wait to get started."

The Not So Ugly Sisters is at the Waterside from this Wednesday to New Year's Day. For information and tickets, go to watersidearts.org/sisters.
