Our aim is to introduce the ethos behind The Pauline Quirke Academy, to demonstrate what we do and how we achieve our goals, how your children will benefit from our classes and, above all, to allow your children to get a flavour of The Academy.

Following a brief introduction the children are divided into age groups and get to sample classes in Musical Theatre, Comedy & Drama and Film & Television (don't worry if your child does not want to join in at this stage, we know that some will be shy, they can just watch and possibly have a go when they're ready). Parents are welcome to stay with their children – of course this happens with the younger groups but teenagers will usually not have their parents anywhere near an unpolished performance!

During the classes parents can have some refreshments, a chat with the PQA staff, and really begin to learn what we are all about! We would also encourage spending some time sneaking a look at your children during their sessions. They really are great fun...
...I look forward to meeting you on the day!

April Herzog – Principal PQA Llandudno

Meet the Team

April Herzog


April Herzog - Principal

Hello, my name is April and I am very excited to be bringing the first PQA experience to North Wales!

I have been working as an actress since graduating from the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts with a Masters in Acting (Distinction) in 2008. I have been involved with both theatre and film, and my educational work has taken me all over the world - from a Convent in Italy to the British Embassy in Dubai.

After immersing myself for many years in the hustle-and-bustle of London, I started to hanker for the hills of home and made the decision to move back to Wales. Wanting to build on my BA (Hons) Drama in the Community and experience in education, I began to explore the possibility of running a performing arts academy. The ethos of PQA and the unique opportunities offered to students spoke to me immediately.

Having worked professionally in the performing arts industry I know all too well the pressures society can put on us all – and particularly on young people - to conform to an ideal; and yet in my experience it has always been my very uniqueness, my own individuality that has landed me a role, and finally brought me here to PQA Llandudno. Here at PQA Llandudno, we hope to nurture every one of our students' individuality, so that every young person is empowered to embrace their own uniqueness.

I am absolutely delighted to be part of the PQA family and look forward to welcoming you to PQA Llandudno. Remember – Be Yourself, Be Amazing.
