The writer of hit TV series Benidorm is to star in the stage version of the show when it visits Birmingham’s New Alexandra Theatre over the Christmas period.
Derren Litten will play the role of Derek during Benidorm Live’s second-city stop-off (3 - 29 December). Commenting on the news, Derren said: “I’m so excited to be joining the cast in Birmingham this Christmas. It’s been 25 years since I’ve been on a stage, so I guess you could say I’m back by popular demand! I won’t lie, I’m pretty scared at the prospect of acting and singing in such an amazing theatre, but if I get nervous and forget my lines, I’ll just say it was a last-minute rewrite!”
Benidorm Live also stops at the Regent Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent, 24 - 29 September 2018
