Kathryn has received critical acclaim for her debut role as Cherubino in the production…

Financial Times…….”The star performance comes from Kathryn Rudge’s Cherubino – chaotically sexy, charismatic, totally compelling.” 6th October 2011.

What’s on Stage…….”Kathryn Rudge glories as the ever nubile cross-dressing Cherubino” 5th October 2011

The Independent……”Kathryn Rudge (Cherubino) keeps the palpitating intensity of adolescence on the boil”. 6th October 2011

The Guardian…….”Kathryn Rudge (Cherubino) sensually refined” 6th October 2011
