Quiz wiz, CJ de Mooi, best known from TV’s Eggheads, will be showing his dark side when he makes his way to The Deco in Northampton next week to star in the theatre’s latest pantomime.
CJ will be among a cast of famous faces appearing in the panto, Jack And The Beanstalk, from December 12 until 27.
The master of general knowledge will be taking on the part of the evil Fleshcreep, while former Big Brother contestant, Alison Hammond, will be starring as the fairy.
The cast also includes Danny Walters from ITV drama Benidorm, panto dame James Horne and BBC Radio Northampton presenter, John Griff.
James, who will be playing Jack’s mum, Dame Trott, is celebrating the fact that this year marks his 35th panto.
CJ said: “This is going to be an amazing panto. We’ve got an amazing cast, some great songs and a wonderful script, which is hilarious.
“We’ve got every gag you can think of thrown in and maybe one or two new things to be seen for the first time. You’re going to be cheering for the fairy, loving Jack and absolutely loathing and despising the villain.”
Tickets range in price from £9 to £14.50. For more information and to book, visit the theatre’s website, www. thedeco.co.uk or call 01604 622749.
