"Jacqueline Harper played Paige to perfection. From her first lines, you knew she was a nasty piece of work and this exacerbated with her increasingly frequent requests for 'more drinks'. She was the epiphany of a depressed wife, determined to bring everyone else down. By the end, I truly felt sorry for her. "

-NODA South-East

"Jacqueline Harper was excellent, as usual, in the lead role of Paige, keeping her acerbic comments cold and sharp as she laid the path to her shock denouement."

-Elaine Hammond, Shoreham Hearld

"As Paige the hostess Jacqueline Harper gave a fine performance of a woman driven by despair to such bizarre revenge. Her ice cold demeanour allowed for some withering, bitchy one-liners."

-Barrie Jerram, The Argus

 

Lady Macbeth

Macbeth, Wick Theatre Co

"Finally, Jacqueline Harper as Lady Macbeth was incredible. I would run out of superlatives trying to praise her performance which contained true depth and emotion. From her darker side to her final breakdown, she showed a magnificence in every facet of character."

-Mark Hall, NODA South-East

"Jacqueline Harper shows both the strength and madness of Lady Macbeth and the pair work well together. There is a lot of pressure performing such an intense play in so intimate a setting, with the audience just inches away. Facial expressions become even more important, as every twitch is noticed, and in this Jacqueline excels."

-Elaine Hammond, Shoreham Hearld

"The stand-out performance had to be Jacqueline Harper as the slave Caliban. She held her hunched-over, monster-like posture throughout each of her scenes – quite some time in some cases – and bounded around the stage with great athleticism. I especially enjoyed the drunken antics of Trinculo, Stephano and Caliban, and the way the movements of someone under the influence were portrayed was spot on."

-Elaine Hammond, Shoreham Hearld

 

"Ariel and Caliban, usually male roles, are well served by Emily Hale and Jacqueline Harper whose performances soon dispel any notions against gender crossing."

-Barrie Jerram, The Argus

 

"Such a demanding piece requires the best actors you can find in amateur theatre and Guy has put together a stellar cast for this one... And so to Sarah Casey, who is in many ways lost in terms of her life as well as in reality, and a strong performance from Jacqueline Harper. Although she has disappeared, she crops up throughout, due to the way the timeline is twisted, and Jacqueline uses this to develop the character."

-Elaine Hammond, Shoreham Hearld

"Jaqueline Harper’s utterly convincing Sarah, fizzed with frustration, restlessness and yearnings for a less mundane life."

"Aside from the aforementioned leads there were two standout cameos for me. The confident and beautifully shallow character of Lorraine Sheldon was skillfully and wittily delivered by the talented Jacqueline Harper."

-NODA South-East

"Making her debut was Jacqueline Harper... She clearly thoroughly enjoyed playing glamorous vamp Lorraine Sheldon."

-Elaine Hammond, Shoreham Hearld

Berte

Hedda Gabler, Palindrome Theatre

"Last, but certainly not least, is Jacquerline Harper as the maid, Berte, whose role has been greatly expanded, creating a character with actual dimensions and backstory. In this new version, she becomes a person living with real pain, and through Harper, that pain and sorrow is palpable, especially in the newly created opening soliloquy, where she turns and faces the audience and introduces us into the hectic world of Ibsen's creation."

-Ryan E. Johnson, Austin Examiner

 

"Jacqueline Harper plays the servant Berte, a role considerably strengthened... The staging begins with a disconcerting stream of consciousness narration by Harper as Berte the maid, a couple of minutes during which the cast move through a posed choreography."

-Michael Meigs, Austin Live Theatre

Jacqueline Harper made this really cool website.
