Ant Payne as Silly Billy
Pantomime is one of Ant’s favourite things to do, having played comic in too many pantomimes to mention. After a long break from performing, producer Jamie Alexander Wilson tempted Ant back to the stage in 2009 to play Silly Billy in Dick Whittington at the Stag Theatre Sevenoaks. Following this, Ant appeared as Silly Billy in Jack and the Beanstalk, Mother Goose, Aladdin, and Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood. Ant played The Mad Hatter in a national tour of Alice in Wonderland before a run at the Must Opera House in Cairo. Last panto season he appeared as Silly Billy Trott in Jack and the Beanstalk at the Woodville in Gravesend, this will be Ant's fourth panto season at the Woodville.
When Ant isn’t performing he runs a successful children’s entertainment business, Silly Billy Parties.
