Rob Ford to appears as The Sugar Plum Fairy a cannon doll in ballet

FYI Your Lordship, that is sooo gay...all the drag queens in Toronto can be heard saying at once : "Whoa girl, dial it back hun"

Mayor Rob Ford will soon make his stage debut with The National Ballet of Canada, the ballet’s artistic director Karen Kain announced Monday.

The mayor will not dance but he will wear a silly, colourful costume, caper about and — whether he likes it or not — follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, David Miller.

Kain announced at a City Hall ceremony that Ford had accepted her invitation of a cameo appearance as a “cannon doll” in a performance of seasonal favourite The Nutcracker, which runs Dec. 10 to Jan. 3.

Ford, a high school football coach not known for his affinity to the arts, will wear a multi-coloured “Petrushka” costume for about two minutes onstage, said ballet spokeswoman Catherine Chang.
