    About me

    Holly danced with the Hazel Bell School of Dance, performing in many shows at the ‘Library Theatre’ in Bradford, progressing to various youth theatres, musicals and competitions.

    During her gap year, Holly coordinated choreography for a town wide project in Shrewsbury called ‘Hopes and Dreams’, where she taught all across the board from Brownies, Youth groups and the more challenging ‘grown ups’.

    Before formal training Holly appeared in many shows, Nancy in Oliver, Rizzo in Grease, and Sally Bowls in Cabaret to name a few.

    Holly then trained at ‘East 15 Acting School’ in London as an actor, working with many experienced directors such as Crispin Bonham-Carter, Dawn Walton and children’s theatre specialist Vicki Ireland (touring in Panto The Ugly Duckling), and at the end of training performed at the Criterion Theatre, Piccadilly Circus in the West End. Later on that summer in the East End played Fanny Squirers in Nicholas Nickleby at Wiltons Music Hall.

    Upon graduation Holly formed, with a couple of her fellow graduates, ‘Short Straw Theatre Company’, thus named as all three of the Artistic Directors are quite petite.

    As Co-Artistic Director of Short Straw Theatre Company Holly was responsible for creative production, sourcing Writers/ Directors and Actors, running workshops to groups of all ages, devising interactive shows, acting on stage for both Short Straw and other theatre companies. With shows playing at; Theatre 503, Greenwich Playhouse, Battersea Arts Centre and workshops at the Soho Theatre London, and playing Scooner in Fates, Victoria in Walthamstow Central, Kelly by Jenny Harrold and Atropos in Threads.

    As well as a stint in the fashion world working for HUGO BOSS and Lacoste where amongst other things Holly set up training and in house fashion shows, Holly is currently Head of Drama at Allstars Academy and working with Emerald Kitty Entertainment as an Actor/Singer/Dancer.
