Mark Lyons as Mayor Frederick
Mark is very happy to be back in his stomping ground for Christmas. Mark first set out on these 'boards' around twenty-three years ago playing Herbert Quale in South Pacific. Mark has played various roles since then, his favourite being, Ogg the Leprechaun in 'Finian's Rainbow', Billy Crocker in 'Anything Goes', Cliuff in 'Caberet', Simon Zealots in 'Jesus Christ Superstar', both Fagin and Mr Sowerberry in 'Oliver!', Danny in 'Calamity Jane', Rooster in 'Annie' and Scrooge in 'A Christmas Carol.
Mark told us 'Having played Fagin twice and then Scrooge in 2016, I am getting worried that I may be getting typecast as a grumpy old man....it must be the Yorkshireman in me!'
