X Factor star to slay Derby giant!

Fri 14 Jun 2013

This year our panto will be signed, sealed and delivered by one of the country’s finest vocalists and rising stars of theatre when Marcus Collins steps into the shoes of the giant slayer in Jack and the Beanstalk.

Marcus sang his way into the nation’s hearts when he auditioned in the 2011 series of The X Factor with the Motown hit Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours. With his modern day slick and sophisticated presence, his strong voice and even stronger sense of his own style, Marcus went from boot camp and judges houses to the live knock-out rounds. Mentored by music legend Gary Barlow, entertaining and engaging with his winning personality and soulful singing, Marcus finished as runner-up to Little Mix, the first group to win the show, performing to a sold out Wembley Arena and more than 14 million viewers watching at home.

The X Factor Live tour followed before Marcus’s self titled album was released. With original material penned by the talented Liverpudlian, the album entered the UK charts at number seven and received massive critical acclaim, with Marcus being likened as the British Cee Lo Green and Bruno Mars.

Marcus will be joining Derby’s favourite comic Mike McClean and the Midlands favourite dame Don Maclean when Jack and the Beanstalk plays from Wed 4 Dec 2013 to Sun 5 Jan 2014.
