Strictly’s longest-serving professional dancer, having been a fixture on the BBC One series since it began in 2004, will put his acting skills to the test in the classic pantomime adaptation of Disney’s Cinderella, which features comedy, extravagant costumes and plenty of audience interaction.
The show’s director, Rachel Lane, added: “We are so excited to welcome Anton to Richmond and his first-ever panto.
“We know the Richmond audiences, young and old, school groups to family groups, will be thrilled to see him in action on our stage.”
