Ever wondered who the faces were behind all of the reviews written on Theatre Full Stop? Well here is your chance to meet the team!
Founder/ Editor – Lucy Basaba
After graduating from East 15 Drama school, where she studied BA (Hons) World Performance, Lucy began writing theatre reviews for lifestyle blog, Yin & Yang. In 2012, she was lucky enough to perform at the Opening Ceremony for the London Olympic Games, a once in a lifetime opportunity that could not be missed! In 2013, after realising just how much she enjoyed writing about theatre, she started writing her own blog, Theatre Full Stop, where she continued to watch a wide range of performances and interview cast members and creatives. Lucy is a trained primary teacher, so if she’s not writing about the theatre then she is busy teaching the future generation! Follow Lucy on twitter: @lbasaba
Theatre Full Stop couldn’t happen without the contributions of talented writers, here are some of the team!
Louise is an English Lit graduate from University of York and reviews for the Yorkshire area. She has a real love of musical theatre and comedy, something which was cultivated thanks to an improv troupe she’s performed with for three years. Alongside writing reviews and blogs, Louise is an avid writer of musical comedy. Her fifteen minute musical revue on graduation was received well, and she’s currently penning a rethinking of The Hunchback of Notre Dame for a cast of 70! Here’s hoping that goes well…

Currently in his final year as a theatre graduate, Luke is hoping to achieve a successful career as an actor (and earn some money from it…fingers crossed). Living abroad in Chicago, Australia, Sweden and Switzerland has definitely wetted his appetite for travel and broadened his skills as a dancer, singer, reviewer and theatre practitioner. Sadly though, he’s not bilingual; his swarve Yorkshire accent is still enough to confuse anyone. A passion for all things theatre Luke enjoys a hard hitting British drama any day, yet can indulge in a classical ballet or opera when time permits.
Stacie is a Dance & Performing Arts teacher currently working in a secondary school in Kent. She has a passion for teaching and celebrating the arts with young people and encouraging them to be creative. Stacie has produced, directed and choreographed a number of shows and musicals and has completed her Level 6 Diploma in Dance Teaching with the British Ballet Organization. In her spare time Stacie enjoys going on adventures with her two year old and watching live theatre.

An avid theatre goer and performer, Hazel is particularly passionate about musical theatre, contemporary adaptation and anything out of the ordinary. Other interests include dance, music and poetry, along with creating and working with theatre workshops for young people.
