Adult Beginners: Wednesday 7-9pm *Runs 1 term a year, starting in September*
The beginners course is run once a year and is a weekly class with a different topic each week to build up a knowledge and understanding of stage craft and performance skills. With each topic comes new challenges and these are building blocks towards improved abilities and confidence. This course is a twelve-week stand-alone course which is a great introduction to acting, or refresher for actors who already have some knowledge and want to hone their skills. At any time this is not running, all beginners are welcome to join our training class which is tailored to individual needs.

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.
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 still runs this school from Cayman. In 2015 she took the winter off teaching to play Cinderella in the Brunton Theatre’s famous pantomime for six weeks, now she is the education officer for the Cayman Drama Society and is excited about all she can bring to the island and what we can achieve here.
