I first fell in love with the Theatre Upstairs when I came as an audience member to see ‘A Taste of Honey’. It was the intimate and special feel of the theatre that captured my attention and made me want to return. The decision to take on the role of Corinne in ‘Exit Routes’ is my first role since performing in my University days. Since starting teaching 10 years ago I have taken a back seat from performing and thoroughly enjoyed watching students grow in confidence and talent. I’m at a point in my life when I am eager to step back onto stage and it is thanks to Billingham Players for this opportunity.
