All our workshops are primarily run by 'The Burnett family', Di, Kim and Elyot, in Chesham, Amersham and the surrounding area.

Di is a professional actress, having trained at Mountview Theatre School. She has extensive experience in Theatre in Education. Since 1990 she has worked exclusively with young people in drama in the Chiltern Area. Her groups regularly perform their own unique work, often at The Elgiva Theatre in Chesham. Di has written, and had performed, over 100 plays for young people.

Kim is a professional actress and teacher, having trained at Bretton Hall, and graduated from both Leeds and Edinburgh Universities. Based in Manchester, Kim is now a successful actress, dividing her time between theatre and film work, at present a director with the Schools' Shakespeare Festival. She still makes time for assisting Di during the holidays and is widely popular with the young people.
