Brundibár Arts Festival: The Artists 2021

Sarah Boulter
Sarah is a North East performer who has missed theatre immensely. Her last live performance was in BRASH theatre company’s ‘Raising Shame‘ which presented real life experiences of Newcastle’s young people to challenge period poverty. Sarah previously had the pleasure of working with NTC in 2017 touring their adaptation of Charles Dickens’ ‘Barnaby Rudge‘ and is now proud to be sharing the story of the incredible Cook Sisters. Their commemorative plaque lies just yards from her house, and it is an inspirational reminder of their bravery and heroism. Credits include; Teechers (York Theatre Royal/Durham Gala), One Of A Kind (Elysium Theatre company), A Viking Christmas (Queen’s Hall, Hexham), Sunset On Tantobie, Snow White, Jack & the Beanstalk (Gala theatre), The Dolly Mixtures (Customs House), The Great Joe Wilson (Darlington Hippodrome), A Doll’s House, The Twelve Pound Look (Hangfire Theatre), Shakers, The Miscast Bard (LessisMORE), The Secret Earl of Biddick (Washington Arts Centre), Rainbird (The Exchange, North Shields), Bankers (Alphabetti)
