Rose Wadham Biography
Rose wrote her first rock opera at the age of 5 and performed it for her teddies in the family linen cupboard. She later embarked on a three year classical theatre training at Drama Centre, London after which she was represented by International Creative Management and performed on the London stage, including for Sir Peter Hall at the Old Vic and Phil Wilmott at the BAC where she took the title role in Germaine Greer’s adaptation of Lysistrata and won excellent reviews in the national press.
Rose then took a U-turn, produced two babies (with the help of one man) and founded Kaliyoga retreats in Spain, Italy and France (kaliyoga.com). After a decade of observation and armed with a mine of material from the holistic world, Rose returned to performing, this time stand-up comedy, character sketches, and cabaret for a variety of audiences, both live and online.
In 2019 she wrote and performed ‘Life Fright!’ a one-woman stand up comedy show and, spurred on by the sound of 200 people laughing at her, she is currently working on a second show called ‘Yoga Teacher Ate My Pet’ for Frome Festival.
