We thought it would be nice for you to get to know us all a bit - after all, there are now seventeen fabulous Folly Mixtures shimmying about for your entertainment! Each week we will throw a few questions at someone and we are starting with the smouldering siren that is Penny Valent!
Which Folly is the biggest party girl?
Probably me! I love a G&T, probably a bit too much. Other than that, it's got to be Kitty 'No Knickers' Devine.
What's your favourite rant topic?
I'm great at ranting so selecting one particular favourite would be rather difficult... But if you got me started on Thatcher you'd definitely regret it.
What are you the most proud of?
I'm proud of just generally being able to live in an incredibly expensive city being creative for a living and doing what I've wanted to do my whole life - dancing. But if I have to be specific I'm gonna say dancing at massive venues like the Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre, or the Milton Keynes arena, or opening a live TV musical a few years ago - I was front centre. All those moments felt pretty special.
Who has a burlesque costume you would liberate in a heartbeat if you could get away with it?
Well obviously Dita has a stunning arsenal of costumes, but I routinely lust over anything by Catherine D'Lish or Beau Rocks. Polly Rae has an incredible tuxedo and Bettsie Bon Bon's Vodka costume from this year's Straight Up was beautiful too.
If you were to choose the theme for the next Folly group act, what would you pick?
I would LOVE to do a seasonal theme next. The Folly Mixtures: Halloween Special. An ode to the Backstreet Boys' 'Everybody' perhaps? Or dead Beauty Pageant Queens that have killed each other off in different ways.
