2018As well as a natural flair for comedy, Lynn also holds her own when it comes to the musical numbers.

    Additional Skills

    I can improvise both drama and comedy scenes, as well as short form Improv and musicals. I sing opera, pop, classical, gospel, jazz and musical theatre. I'm great with harmony and a cappela including beat boxing, body percussion and freestyle rap. I have excellent communication and organisation skills. I'm a fully qualified secondary school Drama Teacher who can also teach English, Dance, Music and general cover - I have 8 years teaching experience as it is how I pay my bills when I'm not performing! I can explain things easily to people at all levels, of all ages and abilities; including people with disabilities, people who have English as a second language and children. I am a fully qualified Zumba fitness Instructor. I have lots of experience in sales, promotions and marketing too. I am excellent at presentations/pitches. If desired, I would be able to stage manage, cast, design, decorate, direct, choreograph movement, co-write, publicise or manage the budget of a show in addition to performing in it, drawing on past experience.

    Additional Information

    I am a brave, enthusiastic artist who loves the craft. I am full of ideas such as Acaprov (an Improvised A Cappella Musical) which I founded in 2018 www.acaprov.com . During lockdown I plan to write an Acaprov book; I already teach workshops on the technqiues we've developed. I also plan to write 2 Children's books 'The Princess and the Angel' and 'Learning Heroes'; and start writing stand-up comedy. I also plan to start a 'Two-prov' and possibly a fith improv group 'In Time'(a time travelling improvised Musical) when the lockdown ends - in addition to returning to Acaprov, Multiverse (which I Co-Artistic Direct), MusicBox and The Inflatables. I also have the rights to produce Marcus Condron's incredible play 'murmur', which I plan to star in asap along side Drew Sheridan-Wheeler. I take direction well. I am fearless, I fully commit to each role I take on, treating any size of role with the same effort, attack and concentration. I enjoy taking on challenging roles, Nina in The Seagull is my favourite to date. I currently rep myself and get most work via word of mouth; I have repeatedly been asked back to several theatre companies; and many of my shows have won multiple awards and 5* reviews. I earnt my degree devising and performing a variety of works from Shakespeare plays and Sondheim Musicals to Japanese Noh Theatre and Avant Garde/Contemporary creations. I am a confident reader/speaker and have experience playing cross gender roles. I LEARN QUICKLY and as such, have a growing habit of stepping into projects last minute to save the day! I thrive under pressure and I'm a real team player. I love what I do.

    About me

    I am an actor, singer and improviser based in Warrington, Cheshire for the lockdown, but usually based in London. This year I am looking to better my screen acting (along side my stage acting, singing, stage combat and comedy Improv). I am taking part in several online monologue competitions during lockdown via social media, and I am looking for new representation. I star as LEXA in U.K. TV series 'Conditions'; and I voice NAOMI DEKOTA in Swiss web series 'AirBnB Secrets' on Youtube and in the press NOW, as it is being filmed safely during lockdown. While staying in I also continue to train, I do accent classes, Meisner technique, singng lessons, yoga and dance. I have a First Class BA Hons Degree in Musical Theatre, a Drama PGCE at Masters level, QTS and a DBS on the update service. I have sinced trained at Kingdom School of Arts, AMTA, Stella Adler Academy LA, Sugarpod voices, Bernard Hiller Studio (LA, Ischia and London), Fourth Monkey, The Actors Centre, Monkey Toast, AMAW London, Burlesque babies and The Nursery. I usually perform weekly with @AcaprovMusical, @MusicBoxImprov and @MultiverseImpro weekly at The London Improv Theatre, HOOPLA Impro and in improv Festivals around the world; I also teach for HOOPLA who remain open online.
