XNTO PANTO was a great success! Thanks to The Glory London and Outhouse Dublin for helping us create this very special platform, and all the amazing performers who took part. Stay tuned for more news re: XNTO PANTO.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a pantomime and this year Pop-Star XNTHONY is bringing you a show like no other!
Part panto, part pageant, part trashfest XNTO PANTO showcases a diverse range of acts plucked from across the U.K and Ireland.
Driven to madness by XNTHONY’s unceasing fabulousness, his backing dancers rebel – wreaking havoc, jeopardising XNTHONY’s world and everything in it. Set to the backdrop of Britney Spears’ iconic album ‘In The Zone’, this is a story about self-expression and redemption as XNTHONY takes you on a journey down a mysterious and glittery hole.
With an exciting mélange of acts ranging from comedy, music and spoken word this is panto you didn’t realise you needed.
XNTO PANTO features London based Drag Queen Just May and Award Winning Performance Maker Tiffany Murphy as ‘The Backing Dancers’.
We are so excited to announce the following artists performing as part of XNTO PANTO:
Daniel de la Motte
Felix Le Freak
Aoife Leonard & Fionn Foley
July 17th saw XNTHONY & The Penny Slots winning the prestigious Best Comedy Award at the 2016 International Youth Arts Festival with their critically acclaimed show DOUZE. The show had played to packed audiences at the festival, which sees the best of the international arts scene perform their work.
DOUZE continues to tour England, visiting Reading, Yorkshire, Somerset and the London Irish Centre with more dates to be announced.
Introducing The Penny Slots! HANNAH & TIFFANY. The all singing, all dancing, unquestionably committed and passionate XNTHONY super fans. They want the Eurovision. But more importantly they support XNTHONY no matter what!
You can follow The Penny Slots on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram! -> @ThePennySlots … Say hi… They’re very nice…
Did you question your position on #BREXIT ? We tried to convince you to STAY! We need you! We can’t do this without you!
But of course… no one listened. But no matter, our possible Eurovision banger for 2017 was an underground hit in London and Ireland. And beware, it’s a catchy one.
…Pity “remain” wasn’t as catchy as this tune…!
Introducing ‘WHO ARE WE’ – a very special music video all about Brexit. Mind you it is also a possible #eurovision song for Ukraine in 2017 and we all know how popular those political songs are at the moment!
