  • Chekhov at Drama Studio London

    Posted on November 26, 2014 by in Blog

    Frantic line learning and high heels practice are the order of the day over at DSL at the moment. Movement and Dance classes have extended to the point where we know 25 minutes of material (including a brilliant Irish Jig to be cracked out when at a party) as well as the opening choreography of […]

  • Week 4 at Drama Studio London

    Posted on August 31, 2014 by in Blog

      Well! They weren’t kidding about intense! In the last four weeks since Day 1, everything’s been kicked up several notches. Voice classes are demanding more and more practice/warm up time (my housemates now have a very warped opinion of my showering habits after hearing me ‘sirening’), Singing classes have us learning lyrics like it’s […]

  • First Day at Drama Studio London

    Posted on August 5, 2014 by in Blog

      Well I’m here! I moved down to Ealing last Saturday and launched right into my intensive course and wow! The first day on Monday was fairly nerve racking but as all 42 of us are in the same boat I felt a lot better about it all. Until I realised that no, actually, we […]

  • London Preparations

    Posted on June 28, 2014 by in Blog

    I’ve been slowly going a bit mad since February, this is the longest period I’ve gone since primary school without being in a show or having to learn lines and life feels a bit empty without it. Thankfully, my One Year Course at Drama Studio London will cure me of this! It’s 37 days til […]

  • Cinders, there’s something I have to tell you!

    Posted on March 2, 2014 by in Blog

    This February I’ve been hiding in the Penymynydd and Penyffordd Institute as Buttons in the 2014 Pantomime – Cinderella! I got to dust off my “He’s behind you”s and kick off the year as the cheeky Buttons in our local charity Panto. As well as hitting the high notes (nearly) and dancing along to Footloose, […]

  • Witness for the Prosecution

    Posted on August 22, 2013 by in Blog

    September 2013 saw a new set of challenges for me thanks to Tip Top’s production of Witness for the Prosecution. I played Greta, the fun-loving Legal Secretary in the murder mystery and was asked to do a lot of things onstage that I hadn’t counted on. The scariest of these was carrying a large tea […]

    On 16th February I attended an outreach audition for ALRA (Academy ¬†of Live and Recorded Arts) performing monologues from ‘Laughing Wild’, Christopher Durang and Shakespeare’s ‘Measure for Measure’.

  • Return to Reality

    Posted on August 29, 2012 by in Blog

      The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is over and I’ve returned to Cardiff after a very manic few weeks. I loved every moment of the Fringe but I’m not complaining about all the peace and quiet I’m getting now! ‘Wuthering Heights’ (performed by amateur dramatic society, Act One from Cardiff University) ran for 6 nights between […]
