QUALIFICATIONS & EXPERIENCE

I am chair of the Scottish Association of Speech and Drama Adjudicators (SASDA).

 

Honours Degree Theatre Studies – Rose Bruford

 

I have extensive experience in the issues surrounding amateur drama. I was fortunate enough, many years ago, to be part of the British Final One Act Festival winners on separate occasions both as a director and actor.

 

I have been involved with theatre for over 40 years and still learning. I have taught acting, directing and technical theatre to honours degree level. I am a Senior External Verifier with the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) for Drama and Theatre Arts along with Technical Theatre. Part of my remit is to make sure that quality standards are maintained throughout Scotland, England and Wales in the area of Technical Theatre.

 

I have extensive experience of educational and training aspects of theatre and drama and have a particular interest in developing the actor’s confidence and skills through the use of the Meisner acting technique. I have empathy with the performer, director and technicians, having run my own theatre company for ten years for which I am Artistic Director. I aim to provide a constructive and supportive adjudication whilst being truthful as a critical spectator.
