It has been announced that 2013 X Factor winner Sam Bailey will make her pantomime debut as Fairy Bowbells in Dick Whittington at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre this Christmas.
The production runs between 11th December and 3rd January 2015.
As well as topping the charts with 'Skyscraper', Bailey has supported Beyonce on her UK tour, had her own number one album, live tour and released an autobiography.
Bailey said: "I am so excited to be appearing in pantomime for the first time. I love performing in front of a live audience and to see people of all ages having a wonderful time over Christmas is going to be brilliant. I know my kids will love seeing their Mummy dressed up in the sparkly costume, and I can’t wait to try my fairy wings on! It’s going to be so much fun!"
Kevin Wood (Chief Executive for First Family) said: "We are so delighted to welcome Sam into our pantomime family. Her talent is so great and unique, for the audience to hear that wonderful voice live will be such a treat. I know her performance will be wonderful. Dick Whittington is one of the best pantomime titles with such a strong story that this production is set to be one of the best that the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre has had. I think tickets are going to sell very quickly, so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment."
