Meet Laura Chesworth, your Centre Director
Laura attended the opening of Hagley Theatretrain as a student back in 2003. From the age of 12-18 she caught the Theatretrain bug and found that her confidence and love for the Performing Arts grew during her 6 years at the school. She then went on to complete a Foundation Degree in Creative Music Production and went on to graduate from the University of Gloucestershire with a BA HONS in Music. She returned to Hagley as an assistant and later progressed from singing teacher to centre director. Now as a qualified primary school teacher, she loves to help children develop in confidence and provide many opportunities at Hagley & Leamington Theatretrain.
Musical Theatre Teacher
Elise trained at the Institute of the Arts Barcelona and obtained a Bachelors Degree in Musical Theatre. After 7 years of education in Musical Theatre, Elise has developed a wealth of knowledge and a love for the industry. Most recently Elise completed her PGCE in secondary education and is now teaching weekly drama classes to children and young adults. Elise is a great addition to the team and brings creativity, expertise and energy to her classes at Theatretrain.
