Andrew Lukas (Director)
Andrew is an actor, director and previous performer of News Revue. His past work also includes work in Rep across the country with a major tour of Clifford Odet’s “Golden Boy”. He will be touring again in the autumn in a one man play about Rudolf Hess before invading Poland. Originally from Manchester, he recently had tea with Michael Winner.

Pete Smith (Musical Director)
Pete was brought up in Essex but tends to keep quiet about where and by whom he's been reared. He trained at the Royal Academy of Music where he developed a fine equine piano technique which is still prevalent in his playing today. These days Pete is a full-time RAM manager but spends most evenings skulking behind pianos in the world of fringe musicals and comedy shows. His eyebrows and large hair are now approaching their 200th appearance in NewsRevue - airing and glimpsing of other parts may be possible by appointment.

Caroline Arnett (Performer)
Caroline graduated from London Studio Centre in July 2003, where she studied musical theatre, and took part in numerous performances, including Anthony Minghella’s “Whale Music”, and Stephen Sondheim’s “Into The Woods”. Since leaving London Studio Centre Caroline has been working at Madame Tussauds in London, as an actor, a dancer and a presenter. (Caroline did write a rather comical biography, but Lise ate it, probably along with all the other sketches and songs that went missing during rehearsals…).

Dan Muirden (Performer)
Since leaving LAMDA in 2002 and in between raising a family of seven, Dan has found time to appear frequently at the Donmar Warehouse, National and Royal Court Theatres. He has appeared on stage at the King’s Head, Chelsea Theatre and Old Red Lion. On screen he has enjoyed roles for the BBC and Paramount Pictures and will soon begin shooting the new British feature “To Love and Conquer” with Rhys Ifans. Dan is currently reading “Heat” magazine

Lise Cervi (Performer)
Lise is originally from Yorkshire where she worked as a comedy performer. Following appearances in “Last of the Summer Wine” (BBC) and “Damon & Debbie” (Mersey TV) Lise felt she could achieve no more up North so moved South. She got lost in the world of children’s theatre for a while but soon returned to her comedic roots playing characters such as Angela in “Abigail’s Party” and Anne Hathaway in “Shamlet”. She recently completed a No 1 National Tour of “Girls Night”. This is her third attempt at NewsRevue having completed one common or garden stint and one Best of NewsRevue. Lets hope she gets it right this time!

Oliver Scofield (Performer)
Oliver grew up watching “Muppet Show” and listening to the music of the “Wurzels” -- explains a lot really!
