Burton’s becoming a regular subject for a certain comedy blogger!
The lovely John Fleming posted a blog about How To Win An Increasingly Prestigious Malcolm Hardee Cunning Stunt Award and mentions Juliette as a possible candidate for her When I Grow Up stunts! Exciting times! Read all about it here…
A HUGE thank you to everyone who pledged their contributions to help ‘When I Grow Up’ get to the Edinburgh Fringe. This was to raise funds to cover costs of materials, staff, venue costs – Juliette is not taking a penny herself. We managed to raise a grand total of £740 – a massive help towards to total cost of the show. Thank you!

Juliette’s first work-in-progress performance of When I Grow Up went really well last night! The Stowmarket audience were lovely. Here’s what they said on Twitter and Facebook:
Michelle G: Excellent first preview last night of Juliette Burton: Writer Performer‘s new show, When I Grow Up (at Edinburgh Fringe). It’s funny, moving, thought-provoking and charming. Definitely recommend – shows in Cambridge too: When I Grow Up (CAMBRIDGE PREVIEWS)
Aaron W: Thanks to @JulietteBurton‘s lovely show last night, I realised I currently have a job, but am working towards having a vocation … you actually inspired me quite a bit! (In terms of pushing for vocation rather than job) … @JulietteBurton put on an excellent show, really good fun and a well told story. What a marvellous evening!
Andy F: Thanks for sharing your story with such courage – if I ever grow up, I want to be as authentic and lovely as you!

The lovely website Funny Women have written a great little article recommending When I Grow Up very highly!
They describe Juliette’s journey to realise her varied childhood ambitions in When I Grow Up, sweetly concluding “Luckily for audiences everywhere, she ended up as a writer, actress and one half of ace comedy duo Mace and Burton!”
They say “If you’ve ever fancied a trip down memory lane, this is definitely not one to be missed!”
So, don’t miss it! Join Juliette for When I Grow Up in Stowmarket, Brighton, Glasgow, Cambridge and Edinburgh!
