Statement re: Marcel White

Derby Theatre is incredibly sad to hear and share the news about the tragic loss of actor, Marcel White. Marcel was due to appear in our production of 4 Walls at the Theatre this month. Marcel passed away due to an underlying health condition. Marcel was a warm, exuberant and wonderful person.  A talented actor who we are proud to have worked with. The whole 4 Walls company, and the team at the Theatre, are devastated, and our love and thoughts are with his family, friends, and all who knew him.  

Sarah Brigham (Chief Executive and Artistic Director for Derby Theatre) said:

“We cannot put into words how shocked and saddened we are at the devastating loss of Marcel. He was vibrant, vivacious, exceptionally talented, a truly great guy with a wonderful zest for life.  I know his passing will be heart-breaking for so many people. Our love and condolences go out to his family, who he spoke about so much, and his close friends. His passing has truly shaken us all, and our focus now is to ensure that his fellow company members, and staff at the Theatre, are given the best support we can offer at this exceptionally tough time."
