…a cast of six who are not only impressive singers, but skilled enough actors to extract maximum humour and pathos from the story. The two lads, Laurence Panter as Ferrando, and Jevan Mcauley as Guglielmo, make an excellent ‘Dumb and Dumber’ double act, each fancying himself the better catch.
Rage off the Stage (Kings Head Theatre production of Cosi Fan Tutte)
The close harmony trio (Chiara Vinci, Tom Clarkson and Laurence Panter) set the scene by capturing the 1950’s style perfectly. There is a playful, effortless and cheeky manner to their performance as they banter with each other, interacting with the audience in a lively, exuberant musical set…

There were splendid performances by the men, tenor Laurence Panter … as captain
Miles Hedley, for the Greewich Visitor (Trinity Laban production of Stephen McNeff’s ‘Banished’)
…Laurence Panter, who produced good singing and acted the feckless Turiddu convincingly.
David Karlin, for Bachtrack (HGO production of Cavalleria Rusticana)
the distribution of lines and songs, and the small amount of humour, make it difficult for anyone to look truly spectacular, but Laurence Panter is such an enormous talent, even in the slightly smaller role of condemned man, Colonel Fairfax, he is impossible not to watch. His incredibly accurate singing voice is a joy and he looked completely at home on this stage…. as usual.
Stephen Hayter, for NODA (West Norfolk G&S production of Yeomen of the Guard)
Lucy Elston as Grittly and Laurence Panter as Franz were fantastic
The Stuart review (Offenbach’s Le 66 at The Kings Head, London)
Le 66 […] was exquisitely sung. Offenbach’s 1856 score showcased the vocal talent of both Panter and Elston

you have a naturally fascinating stage presence. You worked brilliantly as a duo. I felt you were both really listening to each other.
