Hi, I'm Jack!

Hi, I’m Jack! I’m the Company Director here at Theatretrain Loughton, where my job is to ensure your children are enjoying their professional theatre training in a fun and creative way.

I am an ex-student of Theatretrain Loughton, having previously attended as a student for 10+ years and have many wonderful experiences gained from my time at Theatretrain, highlighted are performances at the Royal Albert Hall and Sadlers Wells Theatre! I am currently studying a BA (Hons) in Musical Theatre Performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and have experience in training and performing for the last 13 years.

After leaving the centre as a student, I first returned as Company Assistant in 2023 before converting to be the Director of Acting and the Company Director since 2024.

Learn Genuine Theatre Principles While You Make Friends At Theatretrain Loughton

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.
