About me

I am a very experienced and versatile actress having worked for many companies throughout the UK including seasons at Chichester Festtival Theatre and Theatre Clwyd. I have a good lyrical singing voice (mezzo-sopran range), and a full dance training including tap and ballroom.

I have an excellent Southern American accent having appeared in many Tennessee Williams' short plays including Lucretia Collins in Portrait of a Madonna at Pentameters Theatre

Additional Information

Press Cuttings

American Blues
....with Kempton in particular standing out. As Miss Morgan, we see professionalism, confusion, and some worry, but as Viola, she's an ice queen. Her character's complete lack of empathy really is chilling

Portrait of a Madonna
" ... Victoria Kempton is impressively tragic in the role and the clever use of girlish ribbons in her hair is particularly poignant." The Stage.co.uk Reviews - Catherine Usher

" Kempton is an excellent lead, drawing both innocence and worldly knowledge from her character." Camden New Journal - Catherine Gowers

In Praise of Love
" Victoria Kempton is simply stunning as the refugee ... She also mastered an extremely difficult middle European accent" Herald Express, Torquay -Richard Davies

Additional Skills

Trained dancer - modern, ballroom, tap / Singer mezzo - soprano range / experienced Choreographer
