Budding Theatre Critic Hermione McNamara (aged 17 years) reviews Big Foot

6 November 2017

Hermione McNamara, age 17, from the Queen Elizabeth High School in Hexham, reviewed Big Foot while it was on national tour to the Black Theatre Live consortium venue partner Queen's Hall Arts in Northumberland. 

Hermione said: I’ve always loved going to the theatre and fully admire the actors as it’s something I could never do, but in recent years I never had the time with working and forgot. In 2016, I took my Gold Arts Award and as part of my volunteering began to review. I’ve since passed my Arts Award but still enjoy attending and reviewing as many shows as possible.
