Sarah Ratheram has worked extensively in small and mid-scale theatre, playing roles as varied as the legendary Russian witch Baba Yaga ( "wonderfully malevolent" - Indielondon), a Brummie Baloo in 'The Jungle Book', a pregnant policewoman, and various crazy characters in Phil Wilmott's acclaimed 'Around the World in 80 Days' at BAC.

Since 1997, Sarah has toured with physical and mask-based Ophaboom Theatre ("the theatrical equivalent of the Simpsons"). Roles with them include an unusual Esmeralda in 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame', the "fabulously porcine" Friar Tuck in 'Robin Hood' (Time Out's top 10 children's shows 2002), and Mr Burke in 'Burke and Hare'. "Sarah Ratheram.......spirited, talented and impassioned" - Time Out on 'Robin Hood'.

Sarah trained at East-15 and Oxford University.
