Podcast: Olisa Odele talks McKay and more ahead of Crongton Knights

Posted on 30 January 2020

With just over a week to go until Crongton Knights opens at the Belgrade, in this week’s podcast, we chat to Chewing Gum and Scarborough star Olisa Odele, who plays McKay in the show – the ringleader of the “Magnificent Six”.

As well as talking all things Crongton Knights, Olisa told us a little about how his love of Disney inspired him to take up music, dance and acting, about his teenage songwriting efforts, and why representation is so important, especially in children’s books. Listen in below!

Co-produced by the Belgrade Theatre, Pilot Theatre, Derby Theatre and York Theatre Royal, Crongton Knights premieres in Coventry from 8-22 February ahead of a UK tour. Book now.
