The glitz and glamour of ballroom magic will be brought to the Royal & Derngate stage in Northampton next week in a new show starring Anton Du Beke.

Fresh from starring in BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing series, Anton will kick-start his new show, Ballroom To Broadway, in Northampton before touring venues across the UK and Ireland.

The show, which is packed full of dance and song, will include classic show-stopping numbers, such as Anything Goes, Hushabye Mountain and Begin The Beguine.

Anton will be joined on stage by special guest, West End star Summer Strallen, who has appeared in Top Hat, Love Never Dies and The Sound of Music. Also on stage will be singer Lance Ellington, dancer Faye Huddleston of Burn The Floor fame, and The Raymond Gubbay Big Band Orchestra, conducted by Richard Balcombe.

Anton said: “I can’t wait to get back out on the road again. Ballroom To Broadway is going to be a great show and I look forward to seeing dance fans of all ages as we make our way around the country.”

Anton’s Ballroom To Broadway tour arrives in Northampton on Thursday, January 16 and Friday, January 17, at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £34.50-£42.50. See www.
