Alex is the original director of our very first play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. She has a passion for English theatre and literature, and loves working with enthusiastic amateur actors and seeing them develop their skills.
Alex is self-taught through her experiences in student theatre, her work as an actress in the Amsterdam Dungeon, various voice acting roles in international podcasts and years of work as an acting coach.
In ETU, she takes on the roles of both artistic director and director, and she uses her experiences as an editor for expat media to present a clear and fun experience on stage, that can be enjoyed by anyone!
Anneloes is a passionate whirlwind. She teaches English, wrote for an online magazine, performed as a vocalist in a band and worked as an actress and host on various festivals. She has been on stage doing amateur musical theatre from a young age on. With a passion for drag, make up and theatricality she feels right at home, both on stage and backstage.
In ETU she takes on the role of treasurer, where she tries to make sure the boring stuff is all taken care of so we can all focus on what’s happening on stage.
From early childhood onwards Marly enjoyed acting. She also wrote plays, radio plays and film scripts and performed or recorded them at school and at home. She started doing ‘theatersport’ – improvisational theatre – when she was 9 and at 13 years old she auditioned at the Jeugd Theater School (Youth Theatre School) in Groningen. There she took classes until she finished high school at age 17, after which she moved to Utrecht, and away from acting. It wasn’t until the auditions for A Midsummer Night’s Dream that she returned to the stage. A Midsummer Night’s Dream was her first real production, but hopefully not her last.
At ETU Marly works as the stage manager. She keeps in contact with the actors, and manages props and costumes.
