Hi. I’m Teresa, and I’m throwing letters into the air in celebration. Yes – Live Theatre has invited me to review three of their shows this March as a guest blogger. I know – tough life, but somebody’s got to do it. First task – introduce yourself to our readers. Ahh…
Well, I’ve acted and danced, as a member of the public for, oh, so many years; including thirty artistic years in my adopted city of Newcastle.
I acted with Stage Focus at Live Theatre for two years, and then the Northern Stage Performance Group for a further fifteen. I’ve performed in two plays by A Quiet Word at Newcastle’s Literary and Philosophical Society; my photo’s on the wall there – by the tea bar.
When I’m not acting – I love to dance: Weekly music theatre classes at Dance City, and contemporary dance with the Eliot Smith Company. I’ve joined other community dancers to perform with: balletLORENT, the Jack Webb company, Bullies Ballerinas, and the Southpaw Dance Company in their 2015 and 2016 productions of Rush and Wordplay in South Shields. I once danced through the night at the MetroCentre, for their TV adverts. I was the dancing customer service assistant in three of the seven adverts, which ran for three consecutive years.
And I once won a national poetry competition – the prize was 10 second-hand books. So, I didn’t give up the day job.
Welcome to March 2017. This is Live Theatre…
