An actor whose career has ranged from Shakespeare's comedies to musicals but who is probably best known for his TV roles will be treading the boards in pantomime in Norfolk this year.

Neil Capel who has starred in The Bill, Casualty, and Coronation Street and as Marty Murray in Brookside, will be playing Buttons in the Gorleston Pavilion's pantomime, Cinderella.

He will be teaming up with author and director of this production, Des Barrit who worked with Neil at the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Des says: “Neil has a natural warmth and charm which is perfect for the part of Buttons and audiences will be amazed at this versatility.”
