Having been involved in the Theatre since a young age, Kathryn has grown up surrounded by musicals, plays, inspiring actors and motivational teachers and directors. Kathryn trained with the National Youth Theatre and since has been involved in a host of workshops with the Royal Shakespeare Company and Summer Bootcamps. She soon transitioned from musicals to plays and really found her love for acting. She continued this in her studies, achieving a BA Hons Degree in ‘Drama’.

Within her three year study she explored and worked under the influence of a variety of acting techniques including Strasberg’s Method Acting, Meisner’s Naturalistic approach and Artaud’s experimental portrayal. 

Although her love for stage theatre is evident she has also been involved in productions with ITV, Channel 4 and most recently the award winning film ‘Suffragette.’ The last few years she has developed a huge passion for directing, having produced some contemporary plays including ‘Wasted’ by Kate Tempest as well as extracts from musicals including ‘Les Miserables.’ This led her to discover her love for teaching, in particular watching the progression in every child across all ages!
