Comedian, impressionist, magician, fire-eater and singer Rik Gaynor is making a raucous appearance in pantomime.

The performer is taking to the stage at Chesterfield’s Pomegranate Theatre later in the year in family show Beauty and the Beast.

He has previously appeared at the venue in Jack and the Beanstalk.

Rik will be playing Pierre, a village funnyman, in this year’s show.

Paul Holman, pantomime producer, said: “Rik previously won audiences over with his quick-witted one-liners, natural warmth and engaging and energetic performance.

“I’m delighted he’s returning to release even more rumbustious clowning and slapstick silliness for people of all ages to enjoy.”

The show is on from December 6 to January 5.
