Ceri Dupree proves there is nothing like a dame with a new show called Fit For A Queen at Royal & Derngate next month.

The pantomime dame seen most recently as Ms Smee in the Northampton theatre’s production of Peter Pan brings his skill as a female impersonator to his comedy show.

Time Out described the act as having “Style, wit and glamour at a pace that leaves you breathless!”

The show is inspired by his favourite women performers from around the world and celebrates 30 years on the stage.

The two-hour show includes Hollywood glamour and musical parodies of such stars as Tina Turner and Lady Gaga.

There will be rapid-fire comedy, musical numbers and numerous quick costume changes.

Ceri Dupree Fit For A Queen is on at Royal & Derngate on Saturday, February 7, at 8pm.

Tickets cost £16 and can be booked by calling the box office on 01604 624811 or visiting

Please note that this show is recommended for ages 12 and above.
