I joined the Up-Stage Theatre Company in 2006 and was lucky enough to feature in many of the company’s productions in principle and ensemble roles. I have now gone on to study at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London and can say that many of my skills to take direction, perform ensemble work and develop character background and understanding has come from my time of early exposure to theatre with Up-Stage. If you are a young person and want to develop social skills, confidence and your ability to take direction and perform as a team, Up-Stage will help you achieve these things as well as filling your time with lots of fun and drama!
