He is represented by Equity under his professional name, Thomas Sellick-Newton, he has credited performances and original written works in TV, Theatre, Radio and Live/performance art. He is the proprietor of his own Theatre Company called, ‘Atmostheatre’.
Tom was born in Poole, Dorset in 1993. He studied Drama at ‘A’ level at Ferndown Upper School and then moved to Bristol where he studied at South West Academy of Dramatic Arts, Graduating from SWADA with a foundation degree in ‘Performing Arts and Theatre Making.’ Tom then took a year out from study working on many projects with different collaboratives in stage, TV/screen, radio and live/performance art.
He then returned to his study achieving his B.A (Hons) degree in Performing Arts at the University of Gloucester.Tom now works as a Drama Faciliator with Gloucester Youth Theatre, a member of Equity and is an Associate Producer with the ‘Tempting Failure’ live art platform based in Bristol.
Tom set up his own theatre company called, Atmostheatre in 2013 so that he could faciliate workshops to youth groups, schools, colleges and groups of any age to enable the participants to discover themseves as performers and people. The workshops have many facets, they can be used to examine issues as diverse as self-esteem, confidence and grief.
Moving in to 2017, Tom has been writing and performing physical theatre across the UK which not only tested an audience, but made him think about the audience as a secondary performer. It was in August 2017, we saw Atmostheatre shift from facilitating workshops to debuting a performance of his piece 'Broken Episodes' at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
With more performances of 'Broken Episodes' and many more pieces to come, Atmostheatre is just at the beginning.
