Emily has been teaching freelance in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire since graduating from Lincoln University in 2012 with a degree in Drama and Theatre Studies. She is currently studying her MA Theatre, focusing on script writing and devising.
Emily has worked as a drama teacher at theatre schools across the county, as well as travelling every year to Italy with School of Fish to teach English and Drama.
Emily's aim with Starlight is to help children grow and improve their confidence through drama, with the firm belief that the process is just as important as the product. She writes and teaches for companies across the East Midlands and Europe, and works as a freelance writer, director and dramaturg.

Roxie has forged her career as professional performer and teacher since moving to the U.K five years ago. Her passion for performing began in the Republic of Ireland where she spent many years training to reach her goal to study professionally in the U.K. She chose to begin her studies in LCPA (Leicester College of Performing Arts) where she received her Professional Diploma in Dance and Performing Arts. Roxanne’s experience in England so far includes lead roles in Musicals such as Fame and Sweet Charity. She has also performed in well known conventions, corporate events, and more, as a Singer/Dancer. Not only is she a professional performer, she has an array of teaching disciplines including Group Singing and private lessons in Musical Theatre, Pop, Rock, Jazz and more.
