Vanilla Ice to tackle panto Captain Hook

In Chatham, wherever that is...

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

In highly-improbable celebrity news, Chatham's Central Theatre has announced that its Xmas panto this year will feature Vanilla Ice as Captain Hook.

In what promises to be a real theatrical treat for residents of the City Of Medway Medway Towns, on the north coast of Kent, the 43-year-old Texan rapper is set to strut his stuff in Peter Pan from 9 December to 2 January.

The Central Theatre's general manager, Tony Hill, told the Beeb: "Ice is a huge name who I am sure will be a real draw for parents and children alike. He has never performed in a pantomime before, but I am sure that he will go down as a hit."

We're sure he will, too, assuming he can actually find the venue. The Guardian notes that an enthusiastic Ice twittered earlier this month: "I have some cool news! I will be coming back to the UK to star in the new hit play Peter Pan in London. Hope you all can come to see it ..." ®
