Bean counters swap the office for pantomime

ONLY a couple of weeks to go now until PwC brushes away the post-festive cobwebs with the highlight of every drag-loving accountants calendar – the 27th annual Christmas cross-dressing pantomime.

Over 200 staff and alumni are donning lycra and wigs for the production of Peter Pan, including a few cheeky cameos from board members Richard Sexton, Richard Oldfield, Kevin Ellis and Stephanie Hyde.

Director of the show and PwC finance employee Dave Gironi assured The Capitalist: “Despite a few post-Christmas cobwebs, rehearsals are going really well. Mind you, flying accountants across the stage is a hurdle we’re yet to cross.”

He added: “I guess we’ll find out in the next two weeks if they’ve got a head for heights as well as figures.” Oh no, he didn’t make an a finance joke did he? Altogether now...

The panto will run from 21 - 26 January at the Peacock Theatre on Kingsway before going on tour to Nottingham.a
