Zarina de Ruiter

Going to theatre school as a child and participating in the musicals in high school, Zarina has always been a lover of the stage. She wouldn’t say it was the main reason for making the move from the Netherlands to London in 2010, but it totally was. Besides theatre, her other big passions are literature and travel, and she can be found writing about that and all the other fun things she gets up to in London (outside of her day job as a Digital Content Editor) on her blog Page to Stage Reviews.

Alice Foster

Partaking in acting groups from a young age, Alice has always been a fan of the theatre and losing herself in a performance. An actor firstly – as well as director, stage manager and producer, she sees the performance from all angles to help give a rounded, fair review. When not on stage pretending to be someone else, Alice can usually be found stuck behind a desk with her nose in a book or in the theatre watching other shows.

Sandra Jenkins

I worked as in the West End theatre ticketing business for over 16 years selling shows to the public and obtaining difficult ticket requests for the concierge market so can appreciate shows from the audience perspective. Before I retired in 2016, I worked as Assistant Programmer for the four theatres of Worthing dealing with the financial side of staging a show and producers and promoter direct.

Now that I have more time on my hands
I regularly attend new shows and enjoy writing customer reviews

I enjoy working with other creative individuals, who are passionate about the arts as we are the future generation and our collaboration is key for the industry’s survival. My theatre reviews are not planned to critique, but used to reminisce and dramatically express the life of me, Emma Kay.

Ellen Warwick

A lover of all things musical theatre from a young age, I enjoy attending musicals and dramas both in London and across the South East. Musicals quickly became my favourite thing to see and favourite soundtracks to listen to, I especially love Les Mis and Wicked! I see theatre as opening yourself up to something that you may not have necessarily thought would be your cup of tea but being pleasantly surprised when it is, or still happy you gave it a go if it it isn’t. I hope my reviews will encourage you to go and see things you might not have considered before.

Julie WarwickJulie Warwick

I really enjoy live performances of theatre, music and dance and have no practical experience of this field apart from terrifying school orchestra performances!
I appreciate the talent of all performers and find the live experience and interaction with the audience thrilling.
I consider theatre to be an active experience. I like to be entertained, moved and made to think.
