British Guest Artist/Director

The Visit

     Mr. Ettridge has enjoyed a thirty year acting career in theatre, film and BBC television. He has performed in London’s West End; at the Royal National Theatre; in Regents Park; and for the Royal Shakespeare Company to name but a few venues in his long, established career. He is well-known as Reg in the BBC’s Goodnight Sweetheart and for the villainous Graeme in East Enders as well as for Samson Brass in Disney’s The Old Curiosity Shop. He was recently seen in TNT’s Julius Caesar as Apollonius and was in the recent mini-series, Hitler with Peter O’Toole.

     In addition, Mr. Ettridge enjoys sharing his talents with young aspiring Theatre workers and was delighted to be at ECSU to teach Advanced Acting and to direct The Visit.  Mr. Ettridge also presented a University Hour in the Betty Tipton room in which the cast of the show demonstrated rehearsal techniques that led to the show which ran in the Harry Hope Theatre in April 2003. Mr. Ettridge is now back in England having just finished playing in the Royal National Theatre’s West End production of Democracy.
