    AUDIENCE REVIEWS - Summer 2019

    "Alan McLaren was totally born to be on a stage. If I wasn't sitting on a deck chair he'd have had me rolling on the floor with laughter."

    "I never thought I'd belly laugh along to a production of 'Pride and Prejudice' ...... MR Collins was my absolute favourite (pretty sure that's the first time anyone's said that before) #mrdarcywho?"

    "Saw him in 'Pride and Prejudice" and 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and he was hilarious in both."

    "Loved the actor who played MR Collins."

    "MR Collins was my favourite."

    "Particular good performances by MRS Bennett and MR Collins.'

    "All actors played multiple roles and the best by far was Wickham/MR Collins - a great comedy role which the actor played fabulously. He had us laughing at all the right moments and really added to the fun and lightness of the performance."

    AUDIENCE REVIEWS - Summer 2017

    "A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM"

    'The actors were seemingly tireless, acting several parts with especially brilliant performances from Bottom and Helena.'

    "Excellent performance by the cast especially the guy who played Bottom & Demetrius"

    "Naturally Bottom steals the show and the audiences heart."

    "Bottom...fantastic actor."

    "The actors who played Bottom and Helena were outstanding , although the entire cast were excellent."

    "PETER PAN"

    "The actor that played the nanny (dog), he was incredibly funny, fantastic use of human/prop."

    "The actor who played Smee was very funny."

    THE STAGE - "Alan McLaren's work as John in part of Bernard Pomerance's The Elephant Man was also admirable. McLaren has interesting eyes which he uses to good dramatic effect and his voice work is pleasing - especially as the troubled freak, although we saw equally sensitive use of face in his monologue from the Age of Consent by Peter Morris"

    About me

    I graduated from drama school in 2011. I am an extremely hard working young actor, always wanting to challenge myself with a variety of roles. I would describe myself as a slow burning actor, I try and take something from every rehearsal to create as vivid a character as I can. I love to really transform into the characters I am playing and have been fortunate enough to have played characters that required me to totally transform and really sit in the role that I was playing.

    I am extremely ambitious and although I may appear as a rather shy and retiring person I have a will of iron and a real want to succeed in this business.
