Every pantomime has its villain, and this year is no exception when Dick Whittington opens at The White Rock Theatre.

The villain of this year’s pantomime is King Rat played by Mark Pearce who visited Hastings earlier in the year, when he appeared as Wild Thing in the musical Carnaby Street.

Mark is no stranger to panto having performed various roles in many pantomimes including Aladdin, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty.

Mark is looking forward to returning to Hastings, and very much looking forward to playing the villain King Rat.

Having trained at Central, Mark already has a wealth of theatre experience including roles in Ghost – The Musical, The Blues Brothers, Oh! What A Lovely War, Bugle Boy – The Glenn Miller Story, Twelfth Night, Dangerous Lady. A Midsummer Night’s Dream and the world premiere of Life Of Pi.

In his spare time Mark plays guitar and harmonica.

He is currently writing and illustrating his first children’s book, and fittingly his favourite food is RATatouille!

Don’t miss his performance as the Evil King Rat, in this year’s spectacular pantomime adventure.

Dick Whittington opens at the White Rock Theatre, Hastings, on Friday, December 13 and runs until Saturday, January 4, 2014.
