    Additional Information

    REVIEWS FOR THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME:

    'Katie Tranter regularly stole the show as love-lorn poet Pierre, proud Fleur de Lys and a judgmental court scribe...in each and every role she was eminently watchable and very, very funny'. London Theatre 1

    'Katie Tranter has a genius for comedy, and an ability to really get the audience on her side....Her rather inept and earnest Pierre is one of the standout performances of the evening; hilarious, sweet and endearing' Spy in the Stalls

    ​'Katie Tranter is absolutely hilarious at the loyal Pierre' Love London Love Culture

    ​'Katie Tranter does a standout performance with a seamless differentiation between characters along with excellent comic timing.' Everything Theatre

    ​'A real mention though, has to go to Katie Tranter whose comic timing was perfect and stole the show. She played the roles of Pierre, a nervous and utterly disastrous poet, the spoiled princess Fleur de Lys, and even stood out in the small role of court room judge. She was a delight to watch and had the entire audience in stitches throughout'. Musical Theatre Musings

    'Particular mention goes out to Katie Tranter who played Pierre Gringoire and Fleur-de-Lys (amongst others). Her comedic skills were second to none, always engaging with the audience and you could hear every word in a very difficult acoustic. For me the true stand out performance.' Pocket Size Theatre

    ​'Katie Tranter undertakes some gender changes with complete credibility' London Living Large

    ​'There's good support through the hard working cast with Katie Tranter getting most of the comic relief/fourth wall breaking stuff as a zealous lawyer and hopeless ballardier...these comic interludes are welcome' Broadway World

    ​'Out of the six players, there were two that completely stood out. Both Rhodes and Tranter projected comedy into their roles to help keep the lighted hearted family friendly re-telling of this story in the forefront. They also excelled in the immersive aspects of this production. This immersion included getting audience members to move swiftly between scenes, while still engaging with them to keep the flow of the production, as well as getting the audience involved with certain aspects of the production as a whole. Tranter and Rhodes also stood out because they had excellent vocal projection, allowing the audience to hear the dialogue at all times, despite the production taking place outside next to the very noisy Covent Garden'. London Theatre Reviews

    PRESS FOR GOLDILOCKS & THE THREE BEARS

    'Katie Tranter is good fun as Goldilocks...a captivating production'

    Miriam Gillinson, The Guardian (four star review)

    PRESS FOR CANARY

    "Katie Tranter has a commanding presence and stands out' NARC magazine

    "You will not be able to take your eyes off these three talented performers, and you will certainly leave with your eyes open to a wonderful snippet of history and your cheeks aching from all the laughter. It would be utterly mad not to grab a ticket to this show!" Theatre Box
