Actingworks began a few years ago when our founder, Bebie Waller, was looking for interesting after-school activities for her son, who was at that time in primary school.
Being an actress herself with years of experience in theatre, as well as having worked in film, television, radio, and taught actors in New York, she opened a drama class for local children.
Having studied education and how children learn, she decided to develop this further, as a programme of classes exploring performing arts, music, literacy and numeracy support, as well as foreign language clubs and other fun activities for children and their families, including children with special needs.
From this programme, Actingworks was born.
The Actingworks team is composed of a group of educators coming from a range of different and fascinating backgrounds, including acting, dance, music, teaching, fitness, visual arts and tour-guiding. The whole team have a passion for teaching and learning, and aim to share that passion by providing meaningful and fun experiences that will leave a positive imprint on our audience.
Actingworks was created to provide educational and interactive activities for children, adults and anybody with an eager inner child. We present a friendly, interesting and fun way for you to learn, live and have fun in your city.
“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.”
