Amy Hart is to join The Kings Theatre Portsmouth’s 2021 Christmas pantomime.
The Love Island will star will make her professional on-stage debut in the role of Princess Jill in the Theatre’s traditional family pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk.
She will be joined on stage by the returning pantomime cast from last year’s production including Portsmouth-born, X Factor finalist and one half of Same Difference, Sean Smith, alongside Pompey pantomime favourites with resident Dame, Jack Edwards, James Percy, Julia Worsley, Marlene Little Hill and Peter McCrohon.
A keen performer from a young age, former air hostess and cabin crew manager Amy has combined reality television work with a love for theatre, and has since moved into presenting industry red carpet shows.
Amy said: “Theatre is my absolute passion and pantomime is something I have grown up with so I’m really excited to be doing my first professional show after Love Island.
“The Kings Theatre is absolutely beautiful and I was so blown away when I first came here. There’s so much history and I can’t wait to perform on the stage as part of a pantomime family.”
Paul Woolf, Kings Theatre CEO, added: “I’m delighted to welcome Amy to our Pompey Panto family. With an incredible passion for theatre and the performing arts combined with a fantastic, infectious personality, she will be a real hit with our audience and someone who will settle in with our cast well.
“Last year’s pantomime was incredibly special for so many reasons and will live long in the memory. I’m delighted that we can get the gang back together and Amy is a fantastic addition to that.”
Jack and the Beanstalk, produced in-house by the Kings Theatre will run between 27 November 2021 to 2 January 2022 with tickets on sale now here priced from £18.
