PERFORMING PRESS & REVIEWS

 

“The kids howled with laughter at the flushing sound effects and Andrew Cooper's Pimm was equally humorous. Cooper is quickly becoming a fan-favourite amongst Kamloops theatregoers for his animation on stage -- and he didn't disappoint.”

- Jessica Klymchuk, Kamloops This Week

"Andrew Cooper pro­vided a standout performance and almost every line he delivered in an outstandingly funny French accent was greeted with a roar of laugh­ter from the audience."

-Cameron Doherty, The Omega

"Cooper, who plays Guy of Gisborne in X Fest’s The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, brought laughter to Sherwood Forest with a French accent that made almost any phrase funny, just for the way he said it... Cooper’s scenes with Stephen Sawka, who played the Sherriff of Notingham, were a highlight."

- Kamloops This Week

"There’s the flaky, self-obsessed king, and casting Andrew Cooper in the role was brilliant."

- Dale Bass, Kamloops This Week

"Cooper is equal to the considerable challenge of Shakespearean speech."

- Mike Youds, The Armchair Mayor News

“An understated scene that featured Akeson and Cooper was among the show’s highlights. In portraying two vultures — characters so minuscule to the plot they didn’t even get credits — the two riffed off each other with corny jokes funny enough to get the adults laughing while moving the story along.”

- Jessica Wallace, Kamloops This Week

"Cooper has what should be a minor role as the Monkey King and those scenes have him paired with Allandra Barton as the Wicked Witch of the West. She is another strong actor and the two of them together are a joy to watch.”

- Dale, BassKamloops This Week

"Cooper was excellent in his portrayal of Jacob Grimm..."

-Adam Williams, Kamloops This Week.

"Andrew Cooper and Kelsey Gilker are hilarious..."

-Dale Bass, Kamloops This Week

The Robber Bridegroom by the Brothers Grimm

Chimera Theatre | Kamloops, BC

"gruesome enough to have you hiding your eyes...The Robber Bridegroom took what was already an eerie fairy tale to a new level by layering on the audience’s own consciousness...and had even skeptical audience members on the edge of their seats and scared.”

- Cailyn Mocci, Kamloops This Week

Mockus by George M. Johnson

“Also of note, dancing in the show — Cooper called it expressionism theatre — was bold.”

Jessica Wallace, Kamloops This Week
