RECORD-BREAKING MUSICAL IMPROVISATION <em>Showstopper!</em>: Post-show Q&A with the improv masters @ The Other Palace | England | United Kingdom
The Showstoppers are legends. I first came across them, well, a long time ago at Edinburgh and then at the King’s Head Theatre in London. They even created WhatsOnStage: The Musical for me for a special event. In the new year, they celebrate another milestone – their 1000th performance – with a new eight-week season at[...]
1940s-STYLE MUSICAL SATIRE <em>The Ministry of Biscuits</em>: Post-show Q&A with writer Philip Reeve and the company @ Barons Court Theatre
Stop! Think before you eat that biscuit! Is it in any way fancy? If so, then you are a criminal! In post-war London, The Ministry of Biscuits casts its sinister shadow over every tea-time and elevenses in the land. Established to “control biscuits, and to control the idea of biscuits,” it prohibits decadent sweetmeats, such[...]
NEGLECTED JEAN ANOUILH CLASSIC <em>The Orchestra</em>: Post-show Q&A with director & cast @ Omnibus Theatre
After Q&A events in 2018 for The Pit and the Pendulum, Blood Wedding, The Yellow Wallpaper and The Soul of Wittgenstein, I’ll return to the Omnibus Theatre in 2019 for a rarely seen French modern classic… “BANG, BANG, BANG. That’s love for you…” Fizzing comedy and catastrophe collide in multi-award-winning director Kristine Landon-Smith’s revival of[...]
VAULT FESTIVAL HEADLINER <em>Counting Sheep</em>: Post-show Q&A with the Ukrainian revolutionaries & show creators @ The Vaults
Will you be a protestor or an observer? Join me to stage a revolution at VAULT Festival’s 2019 headline production Counting Sheep, the award-winning immersive Ukrainian folk opera turned Edinburgh Fringe and international sensation, and to hear first-hand from its freedom-fighter creators. Counting Sheep is a deeply personal retelling of the revolution in Ukraine, where[...]
NEW KNOCKABOUT COMEDY <em>My Dad's Gap Year</em>: Post-show Q&A writer author Tom Wright, director Rikki Beadle-Blair and cast @ Park Theatre
After my December event at Dialektikon, I’m already looking forward to returning to the Park Theatre’s upstairs Park90 in the new year as part of a programme of events for the world premiere of Tom Wright’s My Dad’s Gap Year… “Seriously, William, you’re eighteen and you’re gay, for Christ’s sake. You’re meant to swim against[...]
BRAM STOKER IN THE BOOKSHELVES: Post-show Q&A for <em>Dracula</em> staged at the London Library @ The London Library
I had a fantastic time talking to Creation Theatre about their thrilling, sonic-immersive, one-woman adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Pit and the Pendulum. I’m really looking forward to seeing what they do with their hit two-hander version of another literary classic, Bram Stoker’s Dracula – my first-ever visit (certainly for a show) to The London[...]
SHAKESPEARE RE-IMAGINED <em>The Tempest</em>: Lazarus Theatre post-show panel debate @ Greenwich Theatre | England | United Kingdom

TRUE-LIFE TRANSITION TALE <em>Call Me Vicky</em>: Post-show Q&A with sister co-writers & co-stars @ Pleasance Theatre
These true-life sisters truly are doing it for themselves – and for their godmother who played such an important part of their lives. I already feel inspired by Nicola and Stacey Bland and the story they tell. “For the last time, it’s not Martin… It’s Vicky!”  It’s 1980 in Elephant and Castle. Martin and best[...]
MIXED-GENDER REVIVAL OF <em>Lord of the Flies</em>: Lazarus Theatre post-show panel debate @ Greenwich Theatre | England | United Kingdom

Apr 1 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
LIFE AS A MINORITY IN TRUMP'S AMERICA: <em>Half Me, Half You</em> post-show debate @ Tristan Bates Theatre | England | United Kingdom
Anyone who follows me on Twitter (and particularly my @TerriOnPolitics account) will know just how concerned I am by the accelerating authoritarianism on display in my native United States. Playwright Liane Grant does follow me and so knew that the opportunity to chair a post-show discussion on her new play would be one I couldn’t[...]
OSCAR WILDE's PREVIOUSLY BANNED <em>Salome</em>: Lazarus Theatre post-show panel debate @ Greenwich Theatre | England | United Kingdom

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
