Rap singer Vanilla Ice is to make his pantomime debut this year at the Central Theatre in Chatham, Kent.
The performer – best known for his 1991 hit Ice, Ice, Baby – will appear as Captain Hook in the theatre’s production of Peter Pan from December 9 to January 2.
Tony Hill, the general manager at the Central Theatre, said: “Over the past few years we have had some great names at our pantomimes. It is fantastic news that we have booked the internationally famous star Vanilla Ice for this year’s pantomime Peter Pan.
“Ice is a huge name who I am sure will be a really draw for parents and children alike because of his musical and film career as well as his appearance on Dancing on Ice. Vanilla Ice has never performed in a pantomime before, but I am sure that he will go down as a hit when he plays Captain Hook in Peter Pan this year.”
