BRITAIN’S Got Talent star Shannon Parker will perform in the title role of Chantry Dance Company’s new version of the Alice story.

Alice – Wonderland Through the Looking Glass can be seen at the Victoria Theatre, Halifax, on Thursday October 3.

The “inventive and exciting” new ballet is a sequel to the famous Lewis Carroll stories and shines a new light on all his much-loved characters.

The ballet stars Shannon Parker, who is well known for her appearances with Peter Parker as ‘Shannon and Pete’ on Britain’s Got Talent.

The pair were finalists and Wild Card Winners on the popular TV show, as well as finalists on Sky’s ‘Got To Dance’.

Shannon has been principal dancer with San Francisco Ballet and Northern Ballet Theatre, and dances for world-renowned choreographers such as William Forsythe.

Chantry co-artistic director Paul Chantry, said: “We are all thrilled that Shannon is dancing with CDC again this year. She was exquisite last year playing ‘Lucy’ in ‘Dracula – Welcome to D’s’.

“Her experience and professionalism add such a great depth to the company and she hugely inspires the other dancers as well as the creative team.

“Shannon is an exceptional talent, and she brings a unique dimension to the choreography through her interpretation of the work.”

Paul is the co-artistic director alongside Rae Piper, and both are known for their choreography on Birmingham Stage Company’s Olivier-nominated production of David Walliam’s Gangsta Granny. They have also worked at leading opera and dance houses such as Sadler’s Wells and the Royal Opera House.
