JOE BACKS ST GEORGE’S
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.stgeorgestheatre.com
