Theatre

Taking to heart Noel Coward's dictum always to write a 'whacking good part for herself',

Sue Casson has been part of the original casts of The Happy Prince , Requiem,

Albion Forlorn and Two Tigers

 

She was also a notable MD of the long running Newsrevue team at the Canal Cafe Theatre.

 

Her particular cross-over skills as an actor and musician have lead to roles in

Betty's Mirror (NTC) and A Quiet Night In (Finboro')

The Importance of being Earnest (European tour) and Making History (Oxford, Sevenoaks) and The Lights Twinkle Sometimes (Jermyn St)

for which she also composed songs and incidental music.

 

She was also a member of Paul Prescott's resident company at the late lamented La Bonne Crepe in Battersea, enjoying the privelege of having some parts especially written for her.

 

For the 20th anniversary performances of The Happy Prince  Casson lead the cast from the piano with a virtuoso performance of the storyteller, combining singing, magic and musicality.

"Sue Casson immediately makes the audience feel that they are in safe hands: her performance is engaging and she has sensibly been tasked with the role of narrating and driving this piece."
