Aaron Carter lands off-Broadway role

Aaron Carter is set to make his debut on the New York stage in an off-Broadway play.

The 23-year-old singer has signed up to star in The Fantasticks at the Big Apple's Snapple Theatre Center.


The play's writer Tom Jones tells Playbill, "Never in the 51-year history of The Fantasticks have we opted to cast someone with Aaron Carter's level of fame, instead quietly enjoying our reputation for giving many future stars their first professional performing gig.


"But when I saw the level of enthusiasm, professionalism and sheer talent Aaron brought to us, I knew that he would be an incredibly exciting addition to The Fantasticks family.


Carter's run will kick off on 7 November (11).
