Pinocchio will be Michael’s seventh pantomime with the group.
He plays Dougie Dog, one of the Mayor’s henchmen, in his own comical style. Michael played Squirt the squire in last year’s production after portraying Chevrolet, one of the baddie Chauvelin’s henchmen in ‘Scarlet Pumpernickel’ (2015).
These comic roles follow other similar parts he has played in earlier years. – Sid in Cinderella (2008); Casper in Puss in Boots (2010) and Smee in Peter Pan (2014). His debut was 16 years ago as a guardsman in Old King Cole (1999).
