Who we are...
I am Kim Vithana..I trained at Rose Bruford College of Speech and Drama gaining a BA (Hons) in Theatre Arts. I have worked as a professional actress in television, film and on stage for 28 years. I'm currently filming a Netflix Series The Stranger, I'm semi regular on Coronation Street and have recently workshopped a stage version of Life of Pi with the Associate Director of the Old Vic, Max Webster. I have appeared as a regular in many dramas including Holby City, North Square and Midsomer Murders.
I also design, teach and direct screen acting modules at various accredited drama schools including Artsed and East 15. Working as an actor has challenged my own confidence throughout my career and taught me how important it is to know yourself. I hope to pass this and my love for acting on to the students.
I am Jenny Pugh. I qualified with a BTEC & HNC in Performing Arts and subsequently went on to work with various theatre companies as a professional actor. I consider myself a very enthusiastic musical theatre performer, I have performed in various London based shows and have toured these around the country.
I currently design and run community drama workshops working with a variety of children from diverse backgrounds, a wide age range and a varied ability spectrum. I also teach musical theatre and private LAMDA lessons at a dance school which gives me the opportunity to choreograph and inspire performance in children. I believe that music and drama go hand in hand to provide children with key skills and confidence...as well as being fun.
