Scotty T Is The People’s Champion As He Shames Panto Bosses Again
The Geordie Shore legend is not happy about the bad treatment of the cast in his now cancelled panto
Scotty T is continuing to be the people’s champion after expressing outrage over his cancelled pantomime.
The 28-year-old Geordie Shore star has been working hard to ensure fans can see him perform in Snow White (in which he plays Prince Charming) but a string of cockups by organisers have brought the production down completely.
According to reports, Scotty lent £7000 to cover accommodation and flooring for the panto in Leeds but has so far only been paid 10% of his own fee and other cast members haven’t been paid at all.
Describing the shambles on Twitter as “absolutely disgraceful” and “absolutely shocking”, Scotty shamed the production by highlighting a high number of people ha have not been paid.
And it seems the cast followed his lead – with stars refusing to perform on Thursday leading to the show to be cancelled indefinitely and ticket holders advised to seek a refund.
“The entire cast had been promised full payment for a number of weeks,” a show promoter told the Yorkshire Evening Post.
“The cast refused to go on stage on Thursday night because they haven’t been fully paid. Jimmy Cricket announced to the audience that the show was cancelled.”
A statement from the directors Liberty Events (Leeds) Ltd was posted on the White Rose Theatre’s website which said that the show would no longer go on.
“It is with the deepest regret and our sincere apologies to patrons that due to industrial issues that Liberty Events (Leeds) Ltd hereby advise the remaining scheduled performances of the pantomime Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the White Rose Theatre, Leeds are cancelled," the statement says.
“Applications for full refunds for the aforesaid performances effected and the 7pm performance of Thursday, December 29 should be addressed to our contact page.”
Meanwhile Scotty has been highlighting the plight on his Twitter feed.
Power to Scotty!
