EDP Norfolk - - The Mardler -

Co­me­dian, ac­tor and pre­sen­ter Joe Pasquale, King of the Jun­gle in the 2004 ver­sion of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, has added his high pro­file back­ing to St Ge­orge’s The­atre at Great Yar­mouth.

Joe made a sur­prise visit to St Ge­orge’s when he was in town for a show, was given a pri­vate tour and fell in love with the venue.

The­atre di­rec­tor Debbie Thomp­son said: “Joe turned up unan­nounced when we were shut but we were thrilled to show him around – and he loved the at­mos­phere of St Ge­orge’s say­ing it was just the kind of the­atre he would love to stage a show.

“We are hop­ing he will do a show here next year, but – be­cause of his en­thu­si­asm for our lovely the­atre – we also ap­proached him about be­ing a pa­tron and were de­lighted when he said ‘yes’. Hav­ing his back­ing will help raise the pro­file of St Ge­orge’s both lo­cally and fur­ther afield, as we seek to es­tab­lish it as a com­mu­nity hub for the­atre and the arts.”

Joe Pasquale said “I have been a reg­u­lar per­former at Great Yar­mouth for years and think St Ge­orge’s is a fab­u­lous venue but a hidden trea­sure more peo­ple need to dis­cover.” www.stge­orgesthe­
