Mike Yates

Hi, my name’s Mick Yates, and I first got started in theatre many years ago when my partner saw an advert in the local paper for auditions, she asked me to go with her for moral support. We both got minor parts, so having had a taste we decided to join the Princess Theatre Group. I’ve been involved in nine of their productions, four adult pantomimes with Norfolk ‘n’ Good, and more recently I was in a pantomime with the Lavender Hill Mob (a childrens drama company).

I got involved with the Irregular Special Players after the Princess Theatre Group organised a murder mystery evening, at the end of which it was suggested that I might join the company.

My claim to fame has to be getting a Valentine’s card from a Spice Girl.
