What We Do
The Revellers' mission is to provide you with the highest quality theatre experience, in any venue and for any event. From tiny living rooms to polo fields; from yacht decks to school theatres; from charity galas to weddings to corporate celebrations; from audiences of 4 to 400 - Revels In Hand is the ultimate theatre company for private hire.
Who We Are
What Revels are in hand? Is there no play to ease the anguish of a torturing hour?
Midsummer Night's Dream, Act V Scene 1
The meeting of Mel, Lucy and Freddie over a cup of tea in 2014 - all recent drama school graduates and ready to make their mark on the London theatre scene - was, and has remained, a match made in heaven.
Since then they have grown from the seed of an idea to an international service with their privately bookable theatre service, launching officially as Revels In Hand in 2018 in a special event at the signature suite of the Shangri-La Hotel at the Shard, London. The trio have also produced five public shows under their sister company Go People Productions, with directors such as Simon Evans and Paulette Randall and actors such as Freddie Fox, Maddy Hill, Shobna Gulati and Pauline McLynn.
The core team remains the same, but now with a stellar company of actors on call for every booking (in between their Netflix filming schedules and their West End theatre runs!) Associate artists include: Mark Donald, Kemi-Bo Jacobs, Patrick Walshe-McBride, Ellie Ross, Suzie Preece, Greer Dale-Foulkes, Henry Gilbert, Mike Evans, Greg Lockett, Charley Newton-John and Ludo Hughes.
The Core Team
Mel is a director and actor who trained at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. She has directed at venues including Hampstead, Theatre Royal Bath and Stratford East and works as an acting coach for clients across Netflix, HBO and the BBC. As an actress herself, she once had to shave off all her hair for an Arthur Miller play!
Lucy trained at LAMDA before going on to play roles such as a gangster's moll at the Donmar Warehouse, a hideously offensive 1960s housewife on the West End and a version of herself in the BBC comedy Staged alongside David Tennant and Michael Sheen. She now also hosts 2 podcasts alongside her Revels in Hand duties.
Freddie trained at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and since then has paired acting with a role as Editorial Manager and Assistant Producer for Acamar Films. As well as acting for Revels in Hand, Freddie is resident keeper of the costumes, ensuring that the beautiful outfits we use in our shows stay spick and span.
