Maureen Nolan To Star In Cinderella Pantomime

Rotherham Theatres are delighted to announce the first star of the Cinderella Pantomime 2015-16.

Maureen Nolan - The Fairy GodmotherThe Fairy godmother will be played by Maureen Nolan, from the original girl group The Nolans and has also developed an accomplished career as a West End actress.

Maureen has been singing with her sisters, The Nolans, since she was nine years old. They became one of Europe’s first successful girl bands, with phenomenal record sales worldwide – particularly in Japan, where they sold more records than The Beatles! The Nolans have worked with some of the world’s most respected artists including the legendary Frank Sinatra. Their music success ensured that the Nolans put an entire generation “In The Mood For Dancing!”

The Nolans line-up has changed many times, however, Maureen, stayed with the group until they disbanded in 2005. The original girl group reunited in 2009 – with a new album, DVD and a sell-out UK tour, with some venues selling out within hours.

A familiar face in musical theatre, Maureen has received plaudits from critics and audience members alike. Maureen has appeared in the comedy musical Girl’s Behind, and in Mum’s The Word, Footloose, Stardust – A Musical Flashback In Time and The Eva Cassidy Story. Maureen returned to Mum’s The Word in 2008 playing opposite her late and very much missed sister Bernie. In 2011 Maureen performed in the world premiere of the new musical Peter Pan at the Canal Theatre in Dublin.

Maureen is a veteran of 20 pantomimes and is thrilled to be performing as The Fairy Godmother in Cinderella at Rotherham Civic Theatre.
