NEW BRITISH SCI-FI MUSICAL <em>Fanatical</em>: Post-show Q&A with writers and stars @ Playground Theatre | England | United Kingdom
After The Buskers Opera at the Park Theatre in 2016, I’m delighted to be able to work with The Stable on another world premiere, British musical. I saw extracts from Fanatical performed at The Stable’s New Songs 4 New Shows concert in the West End. It’s hilarious – and it’s so exciting now to see the[...]
EXPLOSIVE NEW POLITICAL PLAY <em>An Honourable Man</em>: Post-show Q&A with writer & Parliamentary guests @ White Bear Theatre | England | United Kingdom
Will real-life events continue to overtake the writing of Michael McManus’ frighteningly timely new political play? The subject matter certainly seems to capture so many of my own fears, frustrations and recent experiences as a grass-roots political activist yearning for a return to sanity. I can’t wait to chair this event! “Brexit? Never mind Brexit.[...]
NEW MUSICAL COMEDY FROM <em>SIX</em>'s CREATORS: <em>Hot Gay Time Machine</em> post-show Q&A with writers & co-stars @ Trafalgar Studios | England | United Kingdom
I had such fun talking with Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss about their blockbuster breakthrough mega-hit SIX.

WEST END TRANSFER OF KEVIN ELYOT's <em>Coming Clean</em>: Post-show panel debate @ Trafalgar Studios | England | United Kingdom
I’m starting my new year post-show Q&A schedule back at one of my very favourite venues, Trafalgar Studios 2, for this much-anticipated transfer. More than 35 years on, there will be plenty to discuss around this anniversary production of this debut play from late British dramatist Kevin Elyot… In 2017, King’s Head artistic director Adam Spreadbury-Maher[...]

IRREVERENT BLACK COMEDY <em>Nuns</em>: Post-show Q&A with all-female company @ Tristan Bates Theatre | England | United Kingdom
Sisters really are doing it for themselves on this production! I’ll talk to the all-female company behind this brand-new staging of Robert Luxford’s deliciously irreverent Nuns… Set in a convent, Nuns is a satire that tells the story of three rebel sisters who plot to overthrow the Mother Superior in order to establish smoking rights for themselves. The youngest,[...]

Testimonials

ILovedLucy-Twitterlogo_jul17“Thanks, Terri for the BEST Q&A I ever did. You are the real deal and I am very grateful. And so many folks stayed! Lucille (Ball) would have loved you, Terri, because you are terrific at what you do and because she always appreciated hard work and dedication.” – Lee Tannen, author of I Loved Lucy

LazarusTheatre-logo“We book Terri Paddock to host post-show panel debates for all of our shows. Terri has chaired lively and in-depth discussions for us around Shakespeare, Marlowe and Brecht. As we try to do with our productions, Terri is brilliant at making the talks relevant to today’s audiences around modern political issues and current affairs, and she’s adept at getting the best out of wide range of expert guest panellists and involving the audience and the cast. Her social media support both before and after the events are invaluable too, and her follow-up podcasts and blogs always go down a storm. Terri’s Q&As are tremendously effective at getting people talking about our shows; they form a fundamental part of Lazarus Theatre marketing.” – Ricky Dukes, Lazarus Theatre artistic director

“Terri researched our show thoroughly and is skilled at leading post-show discussions, which can be a challenge when shows finish late and audiences become restless for their last tube. Terri gets on with the job and guides the conversation with confidence and panache, making sure everyone gets a say and all the relevant points are covered. She is a people person, which means she tunes into casts, creatives and audience members with real sensitivity, making her evenings invaluable to a show’s profile on the London theatre scene. Her social media support both before and after the event is extensive and creates a wonderful buzz, which increases vital ticket sales. I look forward to working with her again in the future.” – Ashley Cook, Troupe, producers of The Cardinal producer

Main image - Miss Nightingale the musial 2017“Terri was an absolute dream to work with; wonderfully efficient, delightfully friendly and super insightful. Our Q&A for Miss Nightingale, the musical at The Vaults Theatre, went like clockwork. We had wonderful feedback from the audience and, what’s more, the company really enjoyed it too. It was great how she managed to involve everyone in the discussions. I would wholeheartedly recommend Terri as hers was the best facilitated Q&A in our six years of touring the show.” – Tobias Oliver, Mr Bugg Presents, producers of Miss Nightingale

bookclub-twitter“Terri Paddock is wonderful. She does fantastic post-show Q&A interviews. Really does her homework and is a joy.” – Amanda Muggleton, star of The Book Club

AmericanWife-squarethumbnail“Terri is a true professional, and an excellent facilitator of Q&As – especially ones with such a sensitive subject matter. The Q&A she ran for The American Wife (about rendition and the ‘war on terror’) was the perfect opportunity to engage with the audiences, and generate a buzz about the show, which resulted in a nice boost in sales. I can’t wait for the next chance to do a Q&A with Terri and I would certainly recommend her to other producers!” – Oliver Taheri, The American Wife producer

WaitingForGodot-thumbnail-poster_sep16“Terri is always wonderful to work with. Professional, friendly and a huge lover of theatre herself, there is no one more suited to bring audience and actors together and create a warm and inclusive post-show atmosphere.” – Libby Brodie, Waiting for Waiting for Godot producer

Claudio Macor and Peter Tatchell at Savage post-show Q&A“Terri chaired a special Q&A with LGBTI rights activist Peter Tatchell at my production of Savage. She thoroughly investigated Tatchell and the events in the play in preparation and handled it all beautifully. Her relentless professionalism and guidance was invaluable. Terri is a real advocate for the theatre industry. We would definitely not have achieved such an incredibly successful event without her.” – Andrea Leoncini, producer

SuperiorDonuts_Flag_Feb14“Terri chaired a post-show Q&A for my production of the UK premiere of Superior Donuts. The discussion was a great success and Terri led it with poise, understanding and passion. Her in-depth knowledge of theatre ensured the discussion never flagged, and her warm manner put the cast, director and audience at ease. The discussion also benefitted from Terri’s experience with social media, so that the involvement extended beyond the present audience to those on Twitter. I was delighted to work with Terri and hope to do so again soon.” – Sarah Stribley, producer
