Hi! My name’s Lauren and I’m really looking forward to teaching at Little Voices Welwyn Garden City! I’m a graduate of The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama with a BA Hons in Drama, Applied Theatre and Education.
I’ve been teaching LAMDA for 8 years alongside running drama workshops and public speaking classes for both children and adults. I’ve been a professional actor alongside doing this work, and I direct plays and musicals on an annual basis.
I’ve worked in the community, running theatre projects for children without access to the arts for many reasons. I’m looking forward to bringing all this experience to Little Voices!
