Meet Gabrielle and Lauren, your Centre Directors

Gabrielle and Lauren have always had a passion for performing arts, ever since they were both very young.

Gabrielle participated in various local performances groups, later studying drama, singing and dance. Gabrielle then became a teaching assistant at a primary school where she managed and ran an extra curricular musical theatre club. Gabrielle then moved on to become the performing arts coordinator at a school in London, where she directed 3 shows a year alongside a team of teachers. All of this alongside teaching singing privately to children, as well as at Theatretrain Luton. Despite moving to Essex, Gabrielle’s passion for teaching at Theatretrain Luton encouraged her to continue teaching, commuting every week to inspire the Theatretrain children.

Lauren has been involved with Theatretrain for the last 23 years. She attended Theatretrain as a student from the age of 7, then became a centre manager at Theatretrain when she turned 18, as well as becoming a drama and singing teacher for three separate Theatretrain centres. Lauren has a BA (Hons) degree in Theatre and Professional Practice, as well as various completed courses in child education and young lives. Lauren currently works as a teaching assistant in a primary school, as well as being the subject lead for Key stage 1 and 2 music. 

Whilst both working at Theatretrain Luton in 2021, the opportunity to become centre directors arose, and Gabrielle and Lauren jumped at the chance! They have thoroughly enjoyed running Theatretrain Luton for the past year and look forward to expanding the Theatretrain Luton family evermore.
