I couldn't have done it without these wonderful actors and actresses.I I want to give a massive shout out to John for being a wonderful course leader.

'The pressure of intense learning, moulded together with all the diverse tutors, from all the top London schools, (RADA, LAMDA to name a few) with all the wide range of acting subjects, makes the education a very productive apprenticeship. The competitive nature, to out do one another, in terms of performance is mixed with a very friendly camaraderie atmosphere, which only up's all our games, all the way to the final curtain performance.'
