Strictly Come Dancing judge Anton Du Beke and 2021 champion Giovanni Pernice are heading to Dartford with their award-winning show.

The BAFTA winning show Him & Me will be showing at The Orchard Theatre on Sunday (July 2) with two showings at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.

Since its debut in 2021, Him & Me showcases the stars’ unrivalled rapport, bringing audiences a collaboration of dance, song, and light-hearted fun.

The show will see a display of ballroom and Latin dance, plus musical theatre, along with a host of surprises.

Him & Me is directed by West End star Alan Burkitt, who has performed in shows including Curtains with Jason Manford and Ore Oduba, Top Hat and We Will Rock You.

Anton has also choreographed for shows Strictly Come Dancing and So You Think You Can Dance? as well as the UK theatre tour Fascinating Aida and Giovanni’s smash-hit 2022 and 2023 tours This Is Me and Made in Italy.

Anton said: “The show has something for everyone - from children to great grandparents, everyone will love it.

"Big show stopping group numbers, big cast, loads of glitz, loads of energy, singing, dancing, lights…that’s right up my street.”

Giovanni added: “Musical theatre mixed with ballroom and Latin, plus some amazing singers, really makes it a great show.

“And, of course, there is so much fun between me and Anton. We always go off script, which the audience love.”

Anton Du Beke has been part of the Strictly family since the very first series back in 2004, partnering an array of celebrities over the years - arguably his most memorable partnership being with former MP Ann Widdecombe.

He then went on to be a permanent judge on Strictly Come Dancing and won an NTA Award for Best Talent Show Judge.

Giovanni Pernice became Strictly champion in 2021 with his celebrity partner, Rose Ayling-Ellis, with the pair making history throughout the series - Rose being the first ever deaf contestant on the show and went on to win.

The tour opens in Shrewsbury at Theatre Severn on the June 29 and closes in Southend at Cliffs Pavilion on July 30.

The tour will also visit the iconic Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London’s West End for a special gala performance on July 25 2023.
