“The showing was amazing and I could of burst with pride on that day. I was just in awe as always at how skilled you are at bringing the best out of the children and the parents were equally impressed”.

Tracey Hartley – Teacher Spring wood Primary.


“Joe worked with children with autism and other learning disabilities using drama games, improvisation exercises and theatre techniques. He was able to astutely assess the individual and group needs to effectively plan and deliver fun, engaging and suitably challenging drama sessions. The children absolutely loved working with Joe; their confidence, communication and understanding grew considerably and they produced a brilliant piece of theatre which young actors were incredibly proud of and staff and families were blown away by!”
