About Theatretrain Bury St Edmunds
Building Confidence & Training The Next Generation Of Performers…
Hi, I'm Emma!
Hi, I’m Emma! I’m the Company Director here at Theatretrain Bury St Edmunds, where my job is to ensure your children are enjoying their professional theatre training in a fun and creative way.
I have been Company Director for Bury St Edmunds since 2006. Having first discovered Theatretrain as a parent the day the centre first opened in 2002, I became involved early on. First as Company Manager in 2004 before taking over 2 years later. I am also an International Events Co-Ordinator for Theatretrain and have organised several performing arts trips to Disneyland Paris and New York City for students from all over the UK. I am passionate about Theatretrain and the opportunities it gives to children from all walks of life. I believe children study performing arts for many different reasons and it is our job to ensure they achieve their goals whether it be building self-confidence, making new friends or developing skills for a future career in the industry. I am proud of my team and always look forward to welcoming new students ready to begin their Theatretrain Journey.
