After an early lifelong commitment to theatre and performance, Amy completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Kent, Canterbury, in Drama & Theatre Studies, with a First Masters in Creative Producing. Amy then went onto work for a number of theatre companies after her move to London in 2013 including Battersea Arts Centre and numerous fringe theatres. Amy started out as a member of the Michael Grandage Futures Company in 2013 where she performed and produced material for the stage alongside theatre professionals. This lead to her appointment at the Michael Grandage Company, working on their debut West End season at the Noel Coward Theatre. This included The Cripple of Inishmaan with Daniel Radcliffe and Henry V starring Jude Law, amongst others. From there, Amy went to work for the Royal Shakespeare Company, assisting them with their award winning theatre shows in both London and Stratford upon Avon. She worked across the departments in Casting, Research and development and Literary, gaining first-hand experience of how a professional theatre company produces their work. In 2016, Amy then went on to complete her PGCE Drama teaching degree at Goldsmiths University, where she was awarded ‘Outstanding’ in all categories and is now a full time Drama Teacher in South East London. Having just completed her Assistant Directing & Voice Coach debut in a production of Hairspray, she is beyond excited to be joining Take Flight Academy, and can’t wait to get stuck in!
