Cast & Creatives

Emma Riches

Originally born in Essex, Brooke moved to London to train in the Performing Arts. She studied on the One Year Intensive course at Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts and then went on to train in a two year Acting course at The Bridge Theatre Training Company.
Brooke has been performing in Musicals and stage shows from a very young age. She has a real passion for children’s theatre and all the magic that surrounds it.

Most recently she played Fairy Aubergine in a Pantomime production of Jack and the Beanstalk over Christmas at Theatr Colwyn in Wales.

Before that Brooke was thrilled to take on the role of Upsy Daisy in In the Night Garden Live 2016. She also played Mrs York and Little Bo Peep in a Musical called Humpty Dumpty and the Big Book of Nursery Rhymes, touring the UK and Jersey Opera House. She has also gone as far as China and Inner Mongolia to perform in a musical adaption of Robinson Crusoe touring over 36 cities, playing the comedy sidekick role, which was a lot of fun!

When Brooke is not performing herself, she loves to pass on what she has learnt as a drama teacher to enthusiastic little ones. Brooke also works as a skin artist and has travelled all over the UK playing an array of well-known children's characters. Brooke is so excited to explore the Little Kingdom this year as Lucy in Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom live stage show 2017!
