“Not only did he work extremely hard at the role delivering an excellent performance but also attended every rehearsal regardless of whether or not he was called. Performing Shakespeare in the open air is no easy task and James managed to project his part both vocally and physically to a sizeable audience. James takes direction well but is no puppet actor, working to make the role his own he took shared responsibility for working with other people in any available spare moments when not onstage himself. He has a thoughtful, questioning approach which takes nothing forgranted and was a pleasure work with.”

Fran Morely, Director

“Twelfth Night”

"He listens well, and can take and apply feedback.  James is reliable and conscientious. He communicates well, is personable and brought a great attitude to working with the other actors and crew, and he built strong relationships throughout the company. He has great potential and I’m excited to see what he does next."

Sarah Russell, Director
