    "We also came yesterday and oh my I could not fault it! Mr and Mrs Claus the best I have seen the elves were brilliant it was amazing! We will be back next year!", Facebook, William's Den 2019

    "We came to the father Christmas experience 15th December 2019 and I can honestly say that this is the best one we have been to , you certainly don't feel like your rushed in any way , the elves were really funny and Santa and Mrs Santa we're amazing too , if your looking for a quality father Christmas experience for this year or for 2020, then this is definitely the one to book ," Google Review, William's Den, 2019

    "We attended the Christmas experience today and it was absolutely brilliant. By far the best Santa, mrs claus and elf characters we have come across so credit to them all! Really good with the children and so enthusiastic and entertaining. Felt as though we'd met the 'real' ones! "

    Facebook review, William's Den 2019

    "while Newby does a lovely job of portraying an embittered, hard-faced mother that wants the best for her children, and ultimately herself. "

    A Younger Theatre, Oct 2016

    "....further lively and engaging presences. So, too, is Mandy Newby as an American incomer to the city, representing a character more directly involved in the kind of research and humanitarian work Mensah herself and her colleagues undertake, but who also raises questions around her own nationality and self-definition." A Restless Place. British Theatre Guide, Oct' 2015.

    "There were joyous performances from experienced hands....Mandy Newby as Tweedledum.." Alice in Wonderland, York Press Nov' 2015

    “Mandy Newby’s Miss Prism (the one returnee) amuse too .” Importance of being Earnest, York Press 2014.

    " Meet loud, brash American mama Barbara (exuberant Mandy Newby),"

    York Press 2014

    “Louis Roberts’ and Mandy Newby’s examples as both showed a remarkable passion for their mission to incarnate Oscar’s heroes.” Importance of being Earnest, One&Other, 2013.

    “Mandy Newby’s Bosom Lady and her plethora of bras provide Wife Of Bath saucy relief…” Bed, York Press, 2012

    “Many excellent performances in parts large and small: Ewan Croft's Young Adam [Anna Robinson his Young Eve], Anthony Ravenhall's Joseph, Maurice Crichton's Pilate, Roger Wood's Peter and Mandy Newby's Mother Noah.”, York Mystery plays , Michael Grays Arts Blog, 2012

    “There’s humour - including the entreaties of Noah for his formidable Yorkshire wife to board the ark “ York Mystery plays, The Stage, 2012

    “There are also moments of humour, with Noah's spouse being recast as a sceptic straight out of Carol Ann Duffy's The World's Wife.” Morning Star, 2012

    “Noah and his wife played with the dialogue especially well, brawling in a comedic speech in which the latter refuses to step foot on the ark until she’s told precisely what is going on.” The Yorker, 2012

    “Special mention must be made for The Mayor and Mayoress Selby (Mandy Newby and Ian Giles) whose increasingly ridiculous one upmanship with the leaders of the Painter’s Guild and their fawning over the King and Queen is a highlight. Their reaction to their carefully planned feast being given to the poor sticks out.” Two Planks and a Passion, The Public Reviews, 2011

    About me
