Radio DJ Scott Mills will be making his panto debut this weekend, when he takes to the stage in Leicester’s popular family pantomime Jack and The Beanstalk.
The show will be running at the city’s De Montfort Hall from Friday (15 December), until 7 January 2024.
Scott, who hosts a popular afternoon slot on Radio 2, will be playing the part of Mayor Mills the mayor of the village of De Montfort on the Downs, but is also the DJ of its own radio station, De Montfort FM.
He will be treading the boards alongside Leicester’s X-Factor winner Sam Bailey and A1’s Mark Read, who will be playing the titular role of Jack.
“I do love a new challenge so in a year where I’ve already moved to a new radio home and somehow managed to survive 24 hours on a treadmill, it’s time to tread the boards darling! I’m so excited and cannot wait to spend the festive period performing in the great city of Leicester” he said.
Venue Director at De Montfort Hall, Antony Flint, said: “We’re really excited to welcome Scott to both the Hall and panto! Scott is such an entertaining and charismatic person and has demonstrated that panto quick wit in his two decades in radio. We can’t wait to see him entertain Leicester audiences this festive season. It’s going to be a real treat!”
