    REVIEWS

    "Barrie Ryan English as Buttons is the epitome of Buttons, warm and appealing"

    Cinderella

    "Then there's a camp genie (a wonderfully over the top performance by Barrie Ryan English)"

    "not least a very talented Barrie Ryan English who switches between the Genie, Sergeant Pong and Emperor Ming, demonstrating some blistering dance moves along the way" -the stage

    Aladdin

    "Barrie Ryan English plays born-again Roy with a well considered balance of outward vulnerability and inner strength."

    Nevilles Island

    "Perhaps the most engaging character is Wilf the Wolf, who the kids really respond too. English has a real skill in movement, which helps bring character to the role, and again although not delivered as a traditional baddie as there was humour and warmth, his character is perhaps the most developed"

    Little Red Riding Hood

    "Funny, well directed (Barrie Ryan English) and acted. Thus it is a gift for demonstrating any decent actor's prime remit, which is range. Manchester-based Barrie Ryan English runs the gamut of readily recognisable pupils and staff with consummate ease. It is a testament to his acting ability.

    Teechers

    "Barrie Ryan English, who plays Ghost Writer's main character Darren, deserves special mention. Not only does he go through the emotional wringer during this story, but he's in all 21 scenes, which puts tremendous pressure on him. But he was great today, delivering the Darren I had in mind, and more besides"

    Ghostwriter - Jason Arnopp (Screenwriter)

    "I am very grateful for the skilled and professional way you rose to the enormous challenge of playing Darren and getting such an excellent performance in a large and demanding part in such a short time. You were a tower of strength"

    Ghostwriter - Guy Slater (Director)

    Especially worthy of mention is Barrie Ryan English for making Serapas such an enjoyably inept villain.

    A Gladiator On The Town

    "Special mention must be given to the outstanding Barrie Ryan English who playing both PC Pong and the Genie was extremely versatile from being stupendously silly as the PC and having the audience including myself in tears of laughter, to the stern and very powerful Genie of the Lamp"

    Aladdin-Oldham Coliseum

    "Barrie Ryan English was striking in his two roles as the Priest and Elaine’s father"

    Enchanted The Musical

    About me

    Barrie began acting at the age of 12 performing in local theatre productions playing various roles in productions of 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Carousel'. At the age of 14 Barrie then went on to train in Acting and Musical Theatre at The Oldham Theatre Workshop working alongside many other well known TV & theatre stars and also gaining many invaluble skills and developing his confidence as a performer.

    Barrie did his formal training at the University of Hertfordshire graduating in 1997 with a 1st Class degree in Performing Arts with honors. The course allowed Barrie to train in various styles of dance including Contemporary, Street Jazz and physical theatre. He also studied various acting disciplines including Classical & Shakespeare, commedia dell'arte, and MusicalTheatre.

    Barrie is also an accomplished director, dancer and choreographer and has worked on many corporate events and various pop videos.
