I have a broad array of qualifications ranging from a BA (Honours) degree in Literature, a Diploma in Drama, Certificate in Speech and Drama: Performance Studies, and a Diploma in Speech and Drama Education with LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art).
I am a classically trained actor having studied with LAMDA part-time for 10 years. During this time I have performed text from an array of periods: Greek; Elizabethan; Restoration; Comedy of Manners; Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Naturalism and Contemporary theatre. I have had both theatre and film training, and won many competitions performing not just drama, but also verse and prose. I am very familiar with acting styles and practitioners and know exactly how to perform these styles of acting within their context. I have also co-directed a children’s for the Staffordshire Readers and Writers Festival; staged a devised drama for the Regent Theatre (Stoke on Trent); performed in one-act festivals; successfully coached those auditioning for drama school/summer school and professional jobs and entered private students at drama festivals where they have won prizes.
