"I’ve recently seen Tice Oakfield, playing in another production at the Brockley Jack called ‘Creditors’. I was very impressed with him within that production, but after seeing him in Rock, Paper, Scissors, I was even more astounded by his mounds of talented ability! He not only created a character that was very easily liked by the audience, but also allowed his character’s vulnerability to materialise when necessary – his portrayal of emotion was superb and almost heart-breaking to watch."

I very much enjoyed the performance of Tice Oakfield as Mihai. He captured the torment and vulnerability of the character very well,
British Theatre Guide
Tice Oakfield’s Mihai captures beautifully the unaffected awkwardness of body and earnest vocality that is often seen in English-speaking central and eastern Europeans.
The Upcoming
“Adolph himself is a fascinating character. Young, naive and emotionally malleable Adolph is plagued by inner demons and Tice Oakfield brings all of these facets of his character to life superbly, making me care about him and at times want to rush onto the stage and give him a big hug” 
“This is also the great merit of the cast who manage with some bravura and consistency to maintain such a level of intensity. Tice Oakfield is constantly, feverishly twirling and gasping for air while giving some poignant delivery.”

“Adolph, played by Tice Oakfield, was commendable as the troubled creative genius, lost within his own mental state and consumed by his affection for his wife. A tortured artist combined with a sexually obsessive writer was always going to conclude in disaster, and Tice Oakfield’s realistic portrayal of this crazed soul was faultless.”
“Oakfield’s portrayal as the credulous artist really captures a struggling man who is faced with his own internal demons, at times he provides a much needed comic element to lighten the heavy drama.”
West End Wilma

“Although the background sounds of riot are heard from time to time, the main action here is not on the streets, but inside the head of Adolph, a young artist tormented by internal demons. Tice Oakfield is engrossing as Adolph, bouncing between joyful artistic expression and the suicidal impulses that impose themselves despite his best intentions. Playing a man on the brink of an irretrievable breakdown is a very fine balancing act, and Oakfield creates a convincing account of Adolph’s anguish as he agonises over his art, the loss of his son, and his sense of indebtedness to his wife.”
Stage Seen
“Tice Oakfield gives an arresting performance as the tormented Adolph, strange and troubled with the ability to veer violently between being a sympathetic character and an aggressor, as he asks the question, “can I really be a tyrant?”
Ginger Hibiscus
“Tice Oakfield is convincingly neurotic, open to suggestion, and totally unsure of himself, as the strangely beautiful Adolph”
Reviews Gate
“Tice Oakfield makes us pity his Adolph as he twists and turns (mentally and physically) trying to please Gustav and hold on to his art - the only thing he can cling to in the absence of his wife.”
Broadway World
EBENEZER SCROOGE in A Christmas Carol (musical, UK Tour)
"Tice Oakfield might be a young Scrooge but he’s an effective one. Stooped with weariness, he exudes bleakness like a fog - though you can’t help being fond of him."
"... it was the performance of Tice Oakfield as Ebenezer Scrooge that really shone out. His portrayal could rival some of the best-known adaptations of the piece, with body language, face and voice working perfectly to bring one of the most miserable men of literature vividly to life."
the Harlow Star

“The first coming as the smoke cleared just enough to catch our first glimpse of Ebenezer Scrooge. Initially he looked every inch the disillusioned and miserable man whom Dickens described. Stooped and wizened, he ambled his way across the stage with the weight of the world on his shoulders.”

“Tice played his part with a delicious mix of malevolence and despair and although he was in practically every scene, he remained perfectly in character throughout. His body language was spot on - he had clearly studied his subject and every limb acted as though it belonged to an older man.”
“Tice Oakfield plays Scrooge as a man literally bent double by his sins and gives a sterling central performance for the rest of the play to hang. He's capable of carrying a tune, with a baritone voice that is deep and rich. He has the range to portray Ebenezer's spectrum of emotional states, from his tormented introduction to the finales triumphant elation.”

JAMES HOLLAND in The Musical Detective Agency (musical)
"This is a brave, high energy piece packed with talent"
"Oakfield clearly has an excellent voice, ample musical talent and a strong stage presence. The necessary presence of other characters is handled cleverly: Oakfield steps into different roles with the kitschy lack of subtlety of a 1950s variety show, which suits the aesthetic of the piece perfectly."

"This is a bonkers, but brilliant show suitable for the whole family."
"This one-man show demonstrates Tice’s impressive vocal range and sense of humour, which makes for a thoroughly enjoyable forty-five minutes"
Isle of Wight County press
"endearing and very likeable"
"With a tall, thin frame, dressed sharply, Oakfield is built for physical comedy, and he's certainly committed to his craft, literally throwing himself into his work."
Views from the gods
"Tice and silent sidekick James Willis as Doyle were side splittingly funny and truly original."
"It’s a shame that the Fringe don’t yet offer Perrier style awards because this year it would have been Tice Oakfield aka James Holland or the Flying Dutchman, who would have won one with his one man musical, charting the mystery of the missing Guinea Pig. From his first performance in the Spiritualist Church to his gala performance on Friday night (and final one on Saturday afternoon where it was standing room only with the spirits)"
THE BOY in The Fantastical Tale of the Boy on the Run (puppetry)
"heartful performer, lots of funny and clever moments in both the delivery and
the story, and those breathtaking mini-sets, all rising from a book!"
"Tice Oakfield is engaging and comical as the show’s solo performer, singing silly rhymes and leaping about the stage. - Oakfield’s interactions with the audience are modest and often self-deprecating - he is a captivating storyteller and the jumpy movements of his mini characters fit his style well"
