“I try to attend as many acting workshops as I can, which not only keeps my performance muscles limber, but is also incredibly beneficial to my teaching. I am very excited about the opportunity to work on a regular basis with a group of professionals and continue to hone my devising and performance skills, as well as learning valuable teaching skills from looking through the eyes of a student again.” – Laura Turnball, Curriculum Manager and Drama teacher, Kristin College, on Massive Company’s Professional Practitioners workshops
