Brawl at a theatre during a performance of Michael Flatley's Lord Of The Dance
A woman has appeared in court after a brawl broke out at a theatre during a performance of Michael Flatley's Lord Of The Dance.
Trouble erupted in the orchestra stalls on the opening night of the high-kicking Irish dance extravaganza at the Palace Theatre in Manchester.
Police were called to reports of eight people fighting and arrested one woman for being drunk and disorderly and assault on a constable.
Georgina Lynn Sixsmith (48), from Andrew Street, Middleton, Greater Manchester, appeared at Manchester and Salford Magistrates Court on Thursday and was bailed until a further hearing on May 10.
The trouble began around 9.20pm on Tuesday evening, the opening night in Manchester of Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games, directed and choreographed by Irish dance superstar Michael Flatley.
The show, touring Britain, is described as a high-energy, two-hour fusion of dance styles, from traditional Irish dance to tap, modern and Broadway involving a story of good versus evil, with a Hunger Games flavour.
No-one from the theatre was available for comment.
