The production will take place in Kent
Vanilla Ice will star as Captain Hook in a pantomime production of Peter Pan this winter.
Taking place at the Central Theatre in Chatham, the show will mark the ‘Ice Ice Baby’ hitmaker’s panto debut.
Texas-born Vanilla – real name Robert Van Winkle – appeared on BBC1’s Dancing On Ice earlier in the year and was the sixth contestant to be eliminated from the show.
He was beaten in a skate-off by children’s TV presenter Laura Hamilton.
Meanwhile, Van Winkle has since suggested that taking part in the show could save Charlie Sheen from his “midlife crisis” and provide him with the stability he needs.
