Louie Spence to star in Milton Keynes Theatre’s next panto

Milton Keynes Theatre has announce today that everyone’s favourite TV personality Louie Spence (ITV’s Dancing on Ice, Sky TV’s Pineapple Dance Studio and Louie Spence’s Showbusiness) has been confirmed as the star of this year’s pantomime. Louie wowed audiences at Manchester Opera House last year by performing the role of Dandini in the pantomime Cinderella, breaking box office records and receiving outstanding reviews:

“His Dandini is a one-man chorus line, leaping, twirling, purring and pirouetting with exhausting enthusiasm.” Manchester Confidential

“It’s hard to take your eyes off Mr Spence-he steals practically every scene he is in and leaves you amazed at his energy and constant dance moves executed with an extreme excitability.” Manchester’s Finest

Louie thoroughly enjoyed playing Dandini after receiving standing ovations at every performance – so much so, that he wanted to reprise the role at Milton Keynes Theatre again this year. Therefore, the 2012/13 pantomime title has been changed from Snow White to Cinderella.

Louie today said “I can’t wait to get my panto sparkle back on next Christmas. Milton Keynes has an amazing theatre and I’m sure the audiences and I will have a ball!”

After Graduating from a three year scholarship at London Studio Centre Louie joined the original Award-Winning cast of Miss Saigon.

He also appeared in Cats. Louie’s career has seen him open his own successful dance agency Edit Agency and dance with pop legends Tina Turner, Ray Charles, Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder ,Take That, E17, 2 Unlimited, Boyzone, Eternal, Björk, Kavanagh, Kim Mazelle , Jocelyn Brown and the Spice Girls .

Prior to becoming a household name on BAFTA nominated series Pineapple Dance Studios, Louie also enjoyed success in the Uk and US in Bump N Grind Big, Brother Big Brother’s Big Mouth, Battle Pop Stars, My Bare Lady, Benidorm, Swinging with the Finkels and Celebrity Circus, where he was voted by Hollywood.com as one of the Top Ten Reality Show Judges in America.

Following the success of Pineapple Dance Studios, Louie starred in his own Sky1 series, Louie Spence’s Showbusiness and has become a regular on radio and TV panel shows such as Chris Moyles’ Quiz Night, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, Top Gear, Loose Women, Celebrity Juice and Harry Hill’s TV Burp Louie can currently be seen on our TV screens on a Sunday night as a judge on Dancing On Ice
