Charlotte is a twenty year old performer from Oxfordshire, currently studying in Bath. She has always been passionate about performing and has a wide knowledge of different performance styles. When she is not performing in shows, she loves to watch them. She is a big horror fan and loves anything weird or creepy, but also has a love of physical theatre from her training as a pole and burlesque dancer. She loves writing and enjoys reviewing for Theatrefullstop as it combines her two passions into one! Follow Charlotte on twitter: @WeirdCharlotte
Louise is an English Lit graduate from University of York and reviews for the Yorkshire area. She has a real love of musical theatre and comedy, something which was cultivated thanks to an improv troupe she’s performed with for three years. Alongside writing reviews and blogs, Louise is an avid writer of musical comedy. Her fifteen minute musical revue on graduation was received well, and she’s currently penning a rethinking of The Hunchback of Notre Dame for a cast of 70!

Megan Mattravers is currently studying a BA (Hons) Drama, Applied Theatre and Education Degree at the Royal Central School of Speech Drama. She is immensely passionate about the drama industry and the various fragments including playwriting, directing, facilitation and teaching. She is currently contemplating different avenues of work and specialisation for after she graduates as a Drama Practitioner, in her final year. Meg is an enthusiastic yet analytical theatre-goer with a passion for keeping up-to date with current developing work. As an avid explorer, she is very excited to journey and adventure her way through reviewing many variant works, productions and plays for the blog.
Currently in his final year as a theatre graduate, Luke is hoping to achieve a successful career as an actor (and earn some money from it…fingers crossed). Living abroad in Chicago, Australia, Sweden and Switzerland has definitely wetted his appetite for travel and broadened his skills as a dancer, singer, reviewer and theatre practitioner. Sadly though, he’s not bilingual; his swarve Yorkshire accent is still enough to confuse anyone. A passion for all things theatre Luke enjoys a hard hitting British drama any day, yet can indulge in a classical ballet or opera when time permits.

Other interests include: dancehall, hip-hop and experimental comedy nights (the more extreme the better).
