Oliver Senton has been a working performer since his professional debut in 1991. senton-0096 Before I learned the yes of impro...   Acting first with school and amateur groups (he first performed as The Spider opposite a decidedly stolid Miss Muffet), Oliver joined the National Youth Theatre in 1984, studied English at The University of York and took the two-year acting course at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, 1990-92. Since then he has appeared in most forms of live and recorded work, from the mainstream (RSC, Chichester, Mamma Mia!, BBC Radio, TV staples like EastEndersCasualty and Hollyoaks) to the highly alternative (work with Helen Chadwick, Nigel Charnock and Joseph Alford; as a founder member of performance trio IROQIM; with Ken Campbell - from the 24-hour play cycle The Warp to esoteric impro troupe The School Of Night; and most extensively in recent years with Alan Lane and Slung Low). He is a founder member of Showstopper! The Improvised Musical, teaches and leads workshops, directs, translates and improvises - details of all which you can find here - not least with his exceptionally funny and beautiful wife, Lucy.
