Actors Training: Wednesday 7-9pm
This class is a tailored to the interest and needs of the group and will have a variety of content. It can be a refresher for actors who already have some knowledge and want to hone their stagecraft and acting skills - taking them to the next level, or a step into acting for beginners. No experience necessary, but we recommend the beginner's course first if timetable allows.
Directors Course: 2024 dates TBC.
This class will run through with some Wednesday classes, where the Directors will work with acting students to learn how to direct them in scene studies, and some Thursday classes observing/discussing show rehearsals for one of our main stage productions to learn the process from page to stage. (SMALL COURSE ONLY - 8 students)
Kirsty has been acting from before she was even ten, performing both on stage and screen. She studied Acting and then Musical Theatre at Edinburgh’s Telford college gaining a Higher National Certificate in each. Kirsty then went on to study Drama and Performance and started teaching drama alongside her studies. She has since taught for Edinburgh Acting School, Scottish Youth Theatre, Stagecoach Performing Arts, Brunton Youth Theatre, East Lothian Youth Theatre and many more teaching both adults and children in the UK and abroad. Kirsty also directs and writes alongside teaching and continues to keep her passion for the art very much alive. From 2018-2020 Kirsty studied alongside working at the Playhouse, and now has her Masters in Shakespeare and Education.
She believes in using drama as a way of gaining confidence, communication skills and, of course, nourishing natural talent. She continues to act alongside teaching so that she is constantly learning more about the art to pass on to students and has performed with several theatre companies in Edinburgh and beyond. Having taken over the Edinburgh Acting School in 2011 she had the opportunity to create classes tailored to the individual’s needs, and now she has brought her skills and passion to Cayman to teach children and adults here!
