BEST known for his role on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, the 'King of Ballroom' Anton Du Beke will waltz his way into pantomime at the New Victoria Theatre this year.

Anton will be appearing in Peter Pan at the Woking theatre, running from 8th December 2023 – 7th January 2024.

After being a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing since it started in 2004, he joined the judging panel in 2021, having stepped in as a guest judge the year before.

Quick witted and known for his sartorial style, Anton has become a household name through regular television appearances as a host and guest on primetime television and is one of the most instantly recognisable figures in the world of Ballroom dance today.

Having started in pantomime in 2021, he said: “I’ve had so much fun in pantoland the last couple of years that I can’t wait to come to Woking this year as Smee in Peter Pan. See you all there!”

 Peter Pan is produced by Crossroads Pantomimes, the world’s biggest pantomime producer.

Michael Harrison, chief executive said: I’m absolutely delighted to welcome the ever so talented Anton Du Beke to our Woking production of Peter Pan. Anton’s showmanship, talent and personality have rightly earned him legions of fans, who I know are going to love seeing him team up with Peter Pan and take on the mighty Captain Hook in is this ultimate panto adventure for all the family!”

 JJ Almond, theatre director at New Victoria Theatre said: We are thrilled to be welcoming Anton Du Beke to Woking this Christmas. He is a firm favourite with our audiences, I have no doubt he’ll have the whole family hooked in this year’s pantomime.”

With special effects, stunning sets, beautiful costumes and barrel-loads of laughter, the producers say they intend for Peter Pan to take the whole family on a magical trip to Neverland like never before, in a swashbuckling panto adventure including Tinker Bell, Wendy, John and Michael Darling and Nana.
