Lesley Lightfoot – Cinderella of Showbiz sings, sews, skates through her story THANKS BUT NO THANKS in the eternal hope that one day she will get to the ball.

A tragi-comic tale of hair, hard work, hot pants, dance, ironing, charm and frustration. THANKS BUT NO THANKS is based on Lesley Lightfoot’s wealth of theatre experience as costume/wardrobe supervisor on many West End shows including Wardrobe Mistress on the original London production of Cats and her extensive experience as a fringe performer. Take a glimpse behind the scenes of the showbiz industry.
