Pearl & Deanie

“You’ve got be in it to win it”

Coming soon to an event near you…. ‘Pearl & Deanie’ are the retired old school bouffant cinema usherettes in search of the new ‘next big thing’, the next Hollywood superstar.

Beautiful bedecked, surreal and cartoonlike, these lovely older ladies wield wit, warmth and torch lights as they search out the hidden talent in us all. They inspire impromptu performances by members of the public who are rewarded by their very own SWANK lollipops.

Can you pout like Marilyn Monroe? Lip curl like Elvis? Sing a song, do a dance, tell your favourite joke or impersonate a famous film star? Maybe you have your very own special party trick? Previous highlights range from a group of elderly gentlemen Cossack dancing from a park bench to a whole family rendition of Happy Birthday – in Polish!

Commissioned by Rushcliffe Borough Council in Nottingham, as well as a walkabout Pearl & Deanie are a fabulous ice breaker, perfect for meet and greet, introductions or simply showing the way. The ladies are also in their element in an Adult Only environment…

Very visually eye catching, the simplicity of their talent search is well understood and therefore enjoyed all over the world.

‘Reach for the stars …. and there’s no real talent required’
