About me

Classic, feminine, intelligent, strong (and a little quirky). Kluane Saunders is an actor (BA ( First Class Hons) Acting), and a classically trained soprano (BMUS), with extensive training in jazz, and tap dancing as well as movement and physical theatre training.

Kluane is a theatre-maker, a strong team player, deviser and collaborator. She wrote, produced, and starred in 'An Old Fashioned Girl' (Brighton Fringe, Bedfringe, and Clapham Fringe)

She recently appeared on London stages as Phyllis Burford in the sold out run of 'Somewhere in England' (New Wimbledon Studio), as Loureen in 'Poof!' (The Albany), as Maddie in the workshop of a new musical 'Devilish' (Tristan Bates), and multi-roling in 'Where’s Your Mama Gone?' (Hen and Chickens).

Having lived all over the world Kluane is comfortable in a Canadian, American, RP, and Australian accent, and has an excellent ear for new dialects.

Additional Information

"It's evident that Saunders has an ear for accents, and her training and background as a soprano shines." -femalearts.com (An Old Fashioned Girl)

"The overall effect of this gem of a show transports us back to the golden days of radio and allows Saunders to show her vocal prowess off to the full." -remotegoat.com (An Old Fashioned Girl)

"The singing highlight for me was when the Good Witch of the North, played by Kluane Saunders, and the Wicked Witch of the West, played by Sarah Galbraith, sang Defying Gravity from the musical Wicked. This is not an easy song to sing, trust me...but Sarah and Kluane made it look so effortless and just like in the original musical, it gave me goose bumps." GetBucks review of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

"...Lynette, a religious woman who tolerates his drunken and violent episodes because of her fervent belief in God and the sacredness of marriage. Heartwrenchingly played by Kluane Saunders, it was she who drew the most sympathy from the crowd, and even a few sniffles, thanks to Saunders's powerful and poignant performance." -The Business Times review of Can't Stand Up for Falling Down, 2011

"Kluane Saunders is superbly funny as Rhonda, a tombyish girl who is too blind to realize that love is right in front of her."-The Flying Inkpot review of Almost Maine, 2011
