LOCAL Devon radio DJ and panto veteran, Douglas Mounce, will burst on to the Manor Pavilion stage as the Charles Vance season draws to a close.

Mounce is set to make a special guest appearance in Doctor in the House, the uproarious medical tale marking the penultimate performance of the Charles and Imogen Vance festival 2011, writes Charlie Lister.

Doctor in the House follows young medical student Simon Sparrow as he begins his internship at St. Swithin’s teaching hospital.

Drinking, dating, and falling foul of the irascible head surgeon make for farcical consequences in the stage adaptation of the film which made Dirk Bogarde one of the biggest British stars of the 1950s.

Mounce made his professional debut as a comedian and impressionist at the Hoe Theatre, Plymouth in 1971.

The intervening years have seen him work for 26 years in radio, performances in 26 pantomime seasons at most major theatres in the UK, and numerous TV appearances.

Now a prominent radio star with his own programme on BBC Radio Devon, Mounce is eagerly anticipating performing at Sidmouth.

Doctor in the House runs at the Manor Pavilion Theatre, Sidmouth, from Thursday, September 15 to Wednesday, September 21. Contact the box office (01395) 579977 for tickets.
