Introducing our cast for Blackadder II
We’re pleased to introduce our cast for Blackadder II. This production features many Growl Theatre alumni, plus a few new faces.
Blackadder – Jason Sharland (Growl Theatre co-founder). You may have seen him in Blithe Spirit, The Miser, or The Book of Everything, and he has directed a number of productions.
Baldrick – Paul Whelan, a new player and his first Growl Theatre production. Welcome!
Percy – Raphael Jadin. Previously seen in 2013 as the adulterous fiancé in Secret Bridesmaids’ Business.
Queenie – Liz Ellison (Growl Theatre founding member). Liz has co-directed a number of productions, but hasn’t graced the stage since Blithe Spirit in 2011 and A Night With John Maddison Morton in 2012. We’re excited for her stage return!
Nursie/Mrs Ploppy/Frobisher – Julie Bray. A long time friend of Growl Theatre and accomplished thespian and playwright, Julie also hasn’t graced our stage since Blithe Spirit. We are over the moon to have found the perfect role to see her return to our stage.
Mr Ploppy/Lord Whiteadder – Lee St Clair. A seasoned Growl Theatre performer, you may have seen Lee in The Miser, A Night With John Maddison Morton, The Ladies Man or as the wily servant in The Servant of Two Masters.
Lady Whiteadder – Kathleen Yorston. Previously seen in 2013 as the fearsome grande dame of a mother in The Ladies Man.
Partridge – James Meggitt. Returning to our stage after a 2 year break, you may recognise James from The Miser, A Night With John Maddison Morton, or as a 9 year old in The Book of Everything.
Lady Farrow – Annette Brennan. A fresh new face to the Growl Theatre stage, but part of the extended Growl family as she is the sister of a Growl Theatre founding member and alumni, Rosanna.
Lord Melchett – Brayden Argent. Returning to the Growl Theatre stage after previously performing in The Servant of Two Masters.
