Faye Tozer Steps Into Darlington Panto

Darlington Hippodrome has announced that singer and television personality Faye Tozer is to headline this year’s Hippodrome pantomime, Cinderella, from Friday 10 December.

As one fifth of the multi award-winning pop band Steps for the last two decades, Faye and her band-mates released over twenty hit singles, five chart-topping studio albums and toured the nation nine times with their inimitable style of pop and famous dance routines, amassing record sales of over 20 million worldwide.

Outside of the Steps-phere, Faye has also enjoyed an extensive theatre career, starring in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s one-woman musical Tell Me On A Sunday to great critical acclaim, the UK tour of Love Shack, Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens in London’s West End, Me and My Girl and Over The Rainbow where she played the late Eva Cassidy as well as appearing in numerous pantomimes.

In 2018 Faye took part in the sixteenth series of BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing and along with partner Giovanni Pernice, sashayed into the final, narrowly missing out taking home the coveted glitter ball trophy.

If you saw Faye in the panto at The Alhambra in Bradford you will know that there will be at least one Steps song in the show.

Chief Executive of Crossroads Pantomimes Michael Harrison said: “Faye is undoubtedly an absolute star, and a natural at pantomime, bringing all of her undeniable warmth, humour, fancy footwork and stunning vocals. We’re delighted to be able to team up with her once again and let her cast her spell over Darlington audiences and bring back the magic of pantomime now that we are able to do so.”

Cinderella runs at Darlington Hippodrome from Friday 10 to Friday 31 December 2021.
