Last night we went to see Neil James in Betrayal at the Rialto Theatre in Brighton – Neil gave a splendid performance as Jerry. We really enjoyed the production which has had a five star review:
There are only 3 performances left – hopefully they’ll all be sold out like it was last night!
Later in this month we’ll be back to Brighton to see Neil in another play – Further Education – so we’re looking forward to that. It runs from 29th May to 2nd June at the same theatre.
We’re delighted to have Richard Ratcliffe join the agency.
Richard is a very experienced actor whose career spans theatre, musicals, film, television and radio.
He’s also a compere and singer, and has his own cabaret show:
We’re looking forward to working with Richard and his many talents.
We are very pleased to welcome Neil James to the agency.
Neil is a prolific actor with many film and stage credits.
He’s currently rehearsing a show for the Brighton Fringe which we’re looking forward to seeing at the Rialto Theatre.
We are very happy to welcome Carrie Hill to the agency. Carrie is a highly accomplished actress with extensive credits in theatre and film.
We’re sure she’ll be a great asset to the agency and we look forward to working with her.
Hugo Myatt, who played Tregaurd in Anglia TV children’s series Knightmare, talked to Matthew Gudgin about his life and career on BBC Radio Norfolk recently.

We know this as two of our clients, Cathryn Sherman and Garry Freer, are currently in rehearsals, one for a Christmas show and one for panto. Oh, yes, they are!
Cathryn will be performing in Jack and the Beanstalk at the Colourhouse Theatre at Merton Abbey Mills – performances begin on the 24th November and are every weekend at 2pm and 4pm until the end of January. http://colourhousetheatre.co.uk/rebrand/booking/jack-and-the-beanstalk/
Garry is playing the Narrator in A Christmas Story, The Musical at the Waterloo East Theatre. It’s based on the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on US television every Christmas. It’s set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana and has a delightful versatile score ranging from gentle ballads to show-stopping numbers. https://www.waterlooeast.co.uk/a-christmas-story-the-musical
We’re looking forward to seeing both these shows.
We had the pleasure of going to the premiere of a new feature film at the weekend – Eleven is a very powerful tribute to the bravery of all who fought and were affected by the First World War. Our client Andrew Candish played Lt David Mason, tasked with the dreadful duty of passing on the General’s order to go ‘over the top’ again, just hours before the end of the war. A great character study – congratulations Andrew!
In Eva Edo’s Wonder Girl at the Ovalhouse Theatre, pizzas, Pentecostal rhetoric and lost souls collide in the alternate realities of a young girl leaving the care system. Victoria plays Mary – in one world, a much harrassed juvenile counsellor and in the other, a plant-worshipping priestess guiding the galaxy to an uncertain fate.
We’re looking forward to catching one of the three performances.
We had a lovely trip to Bournemouth to see Victoria Porter in Dead Guilty at the Shelley Theatre, the last play in the The London Repertory Players summer season.
It was a great production and Victoria was brilliant in the lead role of Julia – and it’s not just us that think that. The review in Scene OnePlus says “As Julia Darrow, Victoria Porter is excellent, moving to and fro between confidence, assertiveness, vulnerability and confusion with real dexterity – and managing to sustain a consistency of characterisation that never wavers.”
Victoria Porter is currently rehearsing two plays in rep at the Shelley Theatre – Suddenly at Home by Francis Durbridge and Dead Guilty by Richard Harris.
Suddenly at Home opens this Thursday 16th August, and Dead Guilty next Thursday 23rd August – weekly rep is very hard work, but we know Victoria can do it, as she’s performed in long seasons of weekly rep in Sidmouth.
We wish you well, Victoria, and are looking forward to seeing you in Bournemouth.
