Sammi O’Neill

SammiTheatre South East was launched in November 2014. It was originally an off-shoot from my personal blog shortly after I realised that I was far better talking about theatre than I was about myself.

Many years ago I used to write a theatre column in The Stafford Post and presented a weekly ‘Songs from the Shows’ programme on the local hospital radio station. That was in the days before the Internet though and things have changed a lot since then.

Now apparently enthusiasts ‘blog’.  I am enthusiastic about the theatre therefore it was a natural progression for me to start blogging about theatre.

I have spent a lot of time over the last few months visiting local and London theatres, reviewing shows and spouting off theatre news. I know a fair bit about ‘what’s on where and when’ and am thrilled to see how Theatre South East has grown since it’s launch as a result. I have now taken on extra reviewers to help me.

I am also one of the founders of TheatreBloggers a Community of Arts enthusiasts. Head over to our website to see what we do.

All this keeps me very busy as I balance Theatre South East, my fluctuating job as a freelance administrator and my wonderfully supportive family, but I am living life to the full and wouldn’t have it any other way.
