Such a drama Queen!

Yep that's me a self-confessed over the top 100% drama queen. Before you roll your eyes let me tell you I don't mean the "OMG you don't stock these shoes in my size. I'm going to throw a hissy fit" kinda queen. I mean the I adore the theatre and performing one.

I've not really talked about my Uni life or even my life before that. So I thought I'd take today to bore entertain you with a little bit of me!

Performing was in my blood from a very early age. Age 3 I was attending stage school and my first ever part was in the chorus for 'The Owl and the Pussycat: The Musical', so cringeworthy! Then I started doing panto's with my local am-dram group.
My acting didn't really hit its peak though until my A Levels.

Let's play spot Helen!


This was in improv piece called 'Behind closed eyes'.


As chorus/servant in 'Oedipus'. 

Then Uni started. Half my course was drama, and I got to play a variety of roles.


'Origin of the Species'.


As the doctor in 'Treasure Island: The Musical'. We took this kids show up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It was one of the best experiences.


'Mountain Language'.


As part of the samba band we took to the Fringe.


As puck in 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. I'd always wanted to play this role. It took days to get the green day out of my hair and I was in tears from all the back combing. That's dedication for you.

I even had the chance to join a professional theatre company and be in the chorus for 'An Inspector Calls'. 


Who knows which role will be next!

it's so exciting that you've had all of this awesome opportunities. I hope your next role will be one that you'll enjoy and love. I bet you're quite good. I took drama in college and loved it. I loved all of your photos as well. I hope you're having a wonderful Monday!
