ABBIE HANNAH

I first discovered musical theatre at age 7 when attending a local performing arts school. It was at this school that my passion for performing grew and I realised I wanted a career in the industry. Having starred in musicals such as Little Shop of Horrors, Narnia, Matilda and The Wizard of Oz (playing the roles of Audrey, The White Witch, Matilda and The Tinman), I have a wealth of knowledge and experience in this field of work.

After continuing to take musical theatre and singing classes until the age of 16, I completed a UAL Extended Diploma in Performance and Production Arts at LIPA Sixth Form College. I have also studied Musical Theatre at IC Theatre. My proudest achievement was in 2019 when I won best actor at Farmaggedon for my performance at their yearly scare attraction. I have now been teaching for 5 years and enjoy bringing my performance experience and knowledge to all the classes I teach.

REBECCA CASEY

JEMMA ROCKLIFFE

I have always been super passionate about all the benefits of performing arts and how they can create such a creative, inclusive environment. I have been in the industry since I was a toddler, performing on the Empire by the age of 5 and continuing to perform both on stage, screen and radio. Although I love performing, I saw the magic in providing that same safe space for the younger generation so began my path to teaching. With a First Class degree in Creative and Performing Arts, I continued my studies ending with First Class PGCE specialising in SEN. It is truly a dream to teach and I am a huge advocate of the arts in education, continuing that as much as I can for young people outside of education too!
