ABOUT US

THEATRE FOR LIFE  is about supporting performers with their professional development in the Performing Arts in Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire and London. 

At THEATRE FOR LIFE we believe that creative learning is the key in building self- esteem, motivation and allowing participants to develop positive life changes. Whether it is teaching performing arts through our specialist workshops, education programme, LAMDA tuition, FREE outreach and youth projects, we are here to work collaboratively to raise aspiration. We have three different companies designed to fully support performers and their professional development within the Performing Arts.

TESTIMONIALS


Michelle put a lot of time into helping us find the right speeches, directing us, using different exercises to explore the way our character feels, and holding mock auditions where we would have to go perform and interview as though it was a genuine drama school audition. I am so grateful to have had these experiences to have lead me to where I am today.

Michelle was instrumental in helping me further my career through her intelligent, dynamic and creative work as a director and tutor. Michelle's understanding and professional approach makes it very easy to work with her.
