About Theatretrain Letchworth

Building Confidence & Training The Next Generation Of Performers…

Hi, I'm Geraldine!

Hi, I’m Geraldine! I’m the Company Director here at Theatretrain Letchworth along with my husband Robert. Our job is to ensure your children are enjoying their professional theatre training in a fun and creative way. I started my theatre journey when I received a BA (Hons) in Popular Music and Technology, where I specialised in singing. 

I wanted to spread the incredible magic of music, so I taught music with Theatretrain for more than 5 years. In 2009, I became Company Director of Theatretrain Camden, before I took over Theatretrain Hitchin in 2016. In 2018 I also opened Theatretrain Stevenage, and in that time, I’ve led our students in seven local shows and six large-scale shows.

The Theatretrain Way puts theatre back into the performing arts. Along with technical performance skills in acting, singing and dancing, young people get the chance to release their creativity in a safe and friendly place. Here, in an environment nurturing confidence and empathy, our students can expand to be more than they ever thought they could be. Our aim isn’t just to create better performers, but to help your children reach their full potential.
