THE Embassy Theatre in Skegness is set to wow its patrons next week when a successful comedy ballet rolls into town.

The Big Ballet’s ‘The Size Does Matter Tour’ will take to the stage in Skegness next Wednesday, March 30 at 7.30pm.

Described as a “comedy ballet of weighty elegance and adorable humour”, the show features a spectacular dance troupe who all weigh over 16 stone.

A spokesperson said: “From Russia’s Ural mountains, a region from where Tchaikovsky himself hails, The Big Ballet formed in 1994 and set out to deliberately and, above all, self-confidently challenge accepted social standards in a world where the pursuit of slenderness and beauty seems obsessive.

“The dancers courageously and imposingly prove that grace, elegance, charisma and nimbleness is not the demesne of the ‘thin’, proudly presenting their voluptuous yet surprisingly sinuous and flexible figures.

“These ladies enchant their audiences with different classical and modern ballet pieces in a hilarious comedy show full of fun and astonishing choreography, proving that you shouldn’t take life, or yourself, too seriously.

“Enjoy the show! It will both surprise and thrill you,” they added.

Tickets cost £20.50 for adults, £19 for over 60s and £11 for children, and are available now from the box office on 0845 674 0505 or online at www.embassytheatre.co.uk.
