ABOUT OUR OPENING DAY

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!

Beth Greenlaw - Principal

Hello and a very warm welcome to PQA Thanet!

I have been involved in the performing arts my whole life, and am lucky to have forged a successful career as a performer, director and teacher. I trained at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts in London and worked extensively in plays and musicals worldwide for many years, including a spell as lead vocalist/resident director on some of the world's leading cruise lines.

I furthered my training at LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) gaining a Licenciate Diploma in Speech and Drama, and have since taught both in the UK and abroad. In 2004 I became the founding principal of a large theatre school in the Canary Islands, and was responsible for the introduction of LAMDA examinations to the region. In addition to the vast amount shows and performances undertaken by the school, I also ran a professional theatre company creating musical theatre shows on the island of Tenerife before relocating to Kent in 2009.

It fills me with pride to see many of my students successfully gain places at top drama schools, universities, become members of the National Youth Theatre and have their own successful performing careers. In addition many of my students regularly win prestigious trophies at the Thanet Festival of Speech and Drama.

Alongside a successful vocational teaching career, I have recently directed the award-winning Sky News the Musical at the Canterbury Festival and the Union Theatre, London. Recent onstage credits include performances at Phoenix Artists Club, London, Beam (Park Theatre, London) and at Feinstein's 54 Below in New York. Recent screen work includes Flowers (Channel 4) and a Waitrose commercial, both of which I performed alongside my sons who are both working child actors.
I look forward to working with the wonderful children of Thanet.
