    The musical performances are of a very high calibre, and would justify the price of ticket if they were presented alone as a concert. There is a wonderful unspoken language between the musicians, which creates a sense not only of musical talent, but the friendship between them. They enjoy playing together, and so the audience enjoys listening even more. Reviews hub

    I have to say I often found myself drawn to Kate Robson-Stuart both in her energetic Violin playing and something about her stance and moves which had all the markings of a dancer on the prowl. Theatrelife.org

    Great support came from Sean Kingsley who plays Billy and Kate Robson-Stuart who plays Reza. The Enquirer

    Kate Robson-Stuart eschews the original stereotype, making Reza fully a strong woman in a foreign land. Already a free spirit used to manipulating all for her own purposes, but now using it as a defensive weapon as well, with high intelligence and a rather stunning shoulder tattoo.

    Also this year, Kate has been playing Marilyn Monroe in new musical ‘Blonde’ by writing team Howell and Hurt. Worskshops culminated in a performance at the RADA festival directed by Cara Nolan...

    Previously she was touring the U.K. on the National Tour of 'Crazy for You' playing Mitzi and Tess and understudying the roles of Polly and Irene.

    Kate also appeared as Kathleen in the critically acclaimed and award winning revival of 'Ragtime' at The Charing Cross Theatre directed by Thom Southerland.

     

     

     

    Biography

     

    Kate started singing, dancing and playing the violin at a young age and attended the Junior School at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama with violin as her principal study. She completed an MA Hons in English Lit and Music at Glasgow University before going on to train in Musical Theatre at Guildford School of Acting. Kate has worked regularly in a wide range of genres as an actor and musician - from Shakespeare to musical theatre to commercial ventures such as Craig Revel-Horwood's Strictly Come Dancing spin-off tour 'Strictly Confidential'. She has been lucky enough to have worked with many prestigious directors, musical directors and choreographers. With a good ear for mimicry and often called upon to whip out a variety of accents, a highlight of Kate's career so far was taking this a step further to play LV in 'Little Voice' at the Queen's Theatre, Hornchurch, directed by Bob Carlton (see Videos for some of the voices on display). Recently she has also appeared as Margaret in Pete Rowe's Much ado About Nothing at Stafford Castle and as Mrs Roach/Princess Elizabeth in the UK Tour of Betty Blue Eyes directed by Daniel Buckroyd and choreographed by Andrew Wright.

    Kate co-wrote the 2013 Edinburgh festival hit, 'From where I'm standing' for Delirium Theatre Company, which received rave reviews, a 'Stage - Must See' and had a sell-out run at the Underbelly, Cowgate.

    The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe @ The Sherman

    "The ensemble troupe are enviably talented with each actor swapping effortlessly between dialogue, singing and playing the instruments. The live music and the sheer quality of the acting - and there really isn't one weak link in the cast - are the real strengths of a production that will delight Christmassy theatre-goers of all ages" Western Mail

     

    "Not only are the cast universally charismatic but they are accomplished singers and musicians bringing composer Conor Mitchell's music and songs impressively to life...Mrs Beaver is all charm and whiskers from Kate Robson-Stuart. ". Theatre in Wales

     

    "Rarely does one come across such a self-sufficient cast – at least half possess great musical talent, performing as a live band to accompany the action when not in character. Kate Robson-Stuart (otherwise known as Mrs Beaver) was particularly impressive on the violin." Arts Review Wales

     

    Christmas Carol @ Derby Theatre

    "Kate Robson-Stuart gives style and effrontery to the roles of Mrs Fezziwig and Mrs Cratchit as well as being a skilled violinist". British Theatre Guide

    "The fragrant Kate Robson-Stuart is a delight as Mrs Cratchitt" Behind the Arras

     

    Betty blue eyes - Mercury Colchester/West Yorkshire Playhouse/UK Tour

    "This cast can act, sing and dance...There are some extremely good voices...Jenni Bowden, Rachel knowles and Kate Robson-Stuart are particularly effective in their 'Magic Fingers' first act trio.' What's on stage.

    "Rachel Knowles, Kate Robson-Stuart and Jenni Bowden blend gorgeously in a heart-rending version of Magic Fingers...to create one of my favourite musical moments ever. " Ought to be clowns

     

    Little voice @ The Queen's, Hornchurch

    "Kate Robson-Stuart is splendidly convincing..; a mousy, tense figure in a dressing gown, she almost effortlessly evokes the divas on the discs...the highlight has to be the karaoke medley in her triumph at the club...a stunning tribute to Dame Shirley, Norma jean, our Gracie, the little sparrow..." The Public Reviews.

    "LV is given flesh and blood by Kate Robson-Stuart. She's credibly subdued as the now-neglected daughter and ferociously full-voiced as she vocally becomes the woman singers she idolises" What's on stage

    "Kate Robson-Stuart’s voice is without a doubt the star of this production. Mature and soulful, Robson-Stuart’s tones fill the theatre to the brim and ensure that all attention is immediately drawn towards her in the rare moments when Little Voice is allowed to shine." A Younger Theatre

     

    Love, lies and lust @ Queen's Theatre, Hornchurch

    "Kate Robson-Stuart is a delightful Margery pinchwife, the gleeful, beguiling country wife of the original and easily the star of this musical romp." The Stage
