Former Coronation Street star Steven Arnold has been cast in a Whitsun Bank Holiday pantomime Cinderella.
Steven, who was butcher Ashley Peacock from 1996 to 2010, is to appear as Buttons in Cinderella at The Deco Theatre in Northampton.
After appearing in ITV’s Dancing On Ice in 2011 Steven has since appeared in numerous stage productions, and one episode of the BBC show Casualty too.
The pantomime runs for seven performances over three days between May 28 and May 30.
“Steven’s not only a great character personally, he is also a very good performer, and is a fantastic recruit to our Panto cast,” said Jill Roach, of Northampton based production company Stage Right Productions, who run events at The Deco.
“We’re delighted he’s signed up with us, and he’s now as excited about doing Panto in May, rather than in the traditional Christmas time, as we are about putting it on, and we’re delighted with the enthusiasm we’re getting from local people.”
