Actor Joe Depasquale was hospitalised on Friday evening after he was involved in an accident while performing in a Christmas pantomime at the Manoel Theatre.
People present at the theatre told tvm.com.mt that the panto was immediately stopped after the actor, who has a major role in the play, fell on members of the orchestra. The pantomime had been going on for around an hour in front of a huge audience present in the theatre.
The actor was taken to hospital with an ambulance.
Later on, the Masquerade company producing the pantomime said that the actor will be back on stage next Monday as he suffered no injuries.
