5ive’s Ritchie Neville To Star In Liverpool Easter Panto

After their first Easter panto, Aladdin, in 2014 was a high-flying success and the gigantic Christmas production of Jack and the Beanstalk, LHK Productions are delighted to present another beautiful fairy tale to the stage with their ever favourable panto twist at The Epstein Theatre this Easter, with Beauty and the Beast from Thu 2 – Sun 12 Apr and tickets are on sale now.

Always guaranteeing a special and exciting cast, LHK Productions have landed 5ive frontman, Ritchie Neville to star in the production as Anton. After enjoying worldwide success as part of 5ive, even bagging a Brit Award for Best Pop Act, the group took a break before reuniting in 2013 to take the show on the road and perform their most famous hits like Keep on Movin’, If Ya Gettin’ Down and Slam Dunk (Da Funk) on a 14 show tour across the UK, so Ritchie is certainly no stranger to the stage and is sure to deliver a show-stopping performance.

Ritchie Neville said:

“I am really looking forward to being a part of LHK’s production of Beauty & The Beast. This will be my first ever panto performance, so I am super excited. I love performing in Liverpool, whenever we have gigs in the city with the band, the crowd are always brilliant. You know you get a warm and lively audience in Liverpool so I know doing my first panto here is going to be a whole lot of fun!”

Alongside Ritchie, playing Belle, is Grease is the Word semi-finalist, Alison Crawford, who recently starred in LHK’s production of Jack and the Beanstalk as Princess Jill. Also joining the pair is the returning Michael Chapman, who is sure to bring laughter and excitement to the show taking on the role of Madam Dolly Doughnut.

Beauty and the Beast tells the tale of a handsome Prince with no love in his heart. After an encounter with an Enchantress, he is transformed into a terrifying Beast and the only way the wicked curse can be broken is if the Beast can find true love before the last petal from the magical rose falls.
