Clive Rowe On Stage - Theatre Credits, Bio and Tickets

Clive Rowe

Born in Oldham in 1964, Clive Rowe is an Olivier Award-winning actor, who has enjoyed a successful career on stage and screen. Perhaps best known on screen as Duke in The Story of Tracy Beaker, his theatre credits include Guys and Dolls, The Light Princess and numerous pantomines across the United Kingdom.

Growing up, Rowe expressed an interest in performing as a career. Taking part in productions at Crompton Stage Society, he then decided to pursue the arts professionally, later graduating from Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Even in training, critics would praise his performance, hailing Rowe as a future star. Shortly after, Rowe made his professional stage debut as Enoch Snow in Carousel, receiving an Olivier Award nomination.

In 1994, Rowe starred in the acclaimed West End premiere of Once on This Island, playing Papa Ge alongside Sharon D. Clarke and Lorna Brown. Staying at the National Theatre, he played Nicely Nicely Johnson in the 1997 revival of Guys and Dolls, winning an Olivier for Best Performance in a Supporting Role.

Away from the Southbank venue, Rowe’s West End credits include The Ladykillers at the Gielgud Theatre, Kiss Me, Kate at the Old Vic, and annual appearances as the Dame character at Hackney Empire pantomimes. In fact, Rowe’s been hailed as one of the UK’s best pantomime dames of all time. Rowe then joined the cast of The Prince of Egypt as Jethro, taking over the role from Gary Wilmot. He's due to star in Sister Act with Jennifer Saunders.

Deloris van Cartier is a Reno lounge singer who witnesses her mobster boyfriend commit a murder, forcing her into witness protection. She's placed in a convent in California, in the hope she will adapt to the quiet lives of the nuns and stay out of trouble. The nuns assign her to the choir, where she naturally transforms them into a soulful gospel group and helps them find their voice. Sister Act will be revived at London's Eventim Apollo in 2022.
