Christmas is coming!

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.

Christmas is coming!

Andrew in ‘Eleven’ – a new feature film

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!

Wonder Girl – Victoria Porter

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.

Triumph for Victoria

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.”

Summer rep for Victoria

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.

Welcome Naomi!

We are very pleased to welcome Naomi Capron to the agency. Naomi is a fine actress with extensive credits in stage, screen and radio. You may have seen her recently as the family planning doctor in Call the Midwife!

We look forward to working with Naomi and putting her many skills to good use.

Welcome Naomi!

Scene at the Tabard

Cathryn Sherman is in a short play, Love and Sudden Death written by John Hill, as part of The Scene at the Tabard Theatre. It’s an evening of six snappy playlets at this west London venue on Sunday 8th April at 7.30pm. We’ve read the script, and it’s very funny, so we’re really looking forward to it. Break a leg, Cathryn!
