ANTIQUES Road Trip star Charlie Ross is preparing to entertain audiences on stage as a pantomime dame.

The TV celebrity and antiques expert, pictured at Crown Dry Cleaners in Bicester, plays Widow Wonkey in the Bicester Choral and Operatic Society production of The Magic Lamp.

Mr Ross, who is also a member of the Oxford Operatic Society and is from Bucknell, near Bicester, said: “It has all the ingredients of a traditional panto – a baddie, a pair of comedy characters, a leading boy played by a girl.”

The pantomime, based on the story of Aladdin, uses the music of Sir Arthur Sullivan taken from the most popular Gilbert and Sullivan operettas.

There are performances of the show at 7.30pm from Wednesday, November 21, to Saturday, November 24.

There is also a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. For more information, see
