Hi, I'm Emma!

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

Having first discovered Theatretrain as a parent the day Theatretrain Bury St Edmunds first opened in 2002, I became involved in the company early on. In 2004 I became Company Manager, and in 2006 I became Company Director for Bury St Edmunds. In 2009 I opened Theatretrain Sudbury as a new centre. I am also International Event Co-Ordinator for Theatretrain and has 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 that they achieve their goals whether it be building self-confidence, making new friends or developing skills for a future career in the industry themselves.

Our aim isn’t just to create better performers, but to help your children reach their full potential.
