The cast members were all appalled at the behaviour of the football fans who came to see their show

Stage actors raged against audience members who were glued to England's dramatic World Cup penalty shootout win on their mobile phones while they attended a musical.

The country was gripped as Gareth Southgate's team ended their penalties hoodoo to beat Colombia in the last 16 on July 3.

But actor Niall Sheehy tweeted his outrage as two women failed to control their emotions and keep their eyes fixed on the stage for "Titanic The Musical" in the city of Nottingham.

"And when a cast member signalled 'put your phone away' during the bows and you smiled, gave a thumbs up and replied 'I know -- we won!!', I think you may have let us all know you are the stupidest woman on the planet," Sheehy wrote.

Sheehy's fellow cast member Kieran Brown was also shocked by the behaviour.

"Dumbfounded. 2 ladies, 1 older 1 middle aged, slap bang front row clearly watching football on phones during the most poignant moment of lifeboats scene, cheering & giggling like stupid schoolgirls," tweeted Brown.

"To say I'm raging is an understatement! They should be marched out in disgrace!"

The two women did receive some support on social media.

One wit, referring to the Titanic story, said "we know it sinks" but pointed out there was no such obvious ending to a penalty shootout involving England, who had a miserable record from spot-kicks before the Colombia win.
