Drama has been a big part of the school since the beginning – with a grand theatrical finale ending every year’s annual show, and a full scale musical production being staged in August as part of the yearly Summer School – and now, since 2019, drama forms part of our regular timetable.
The classes are taught by Jennie Dunne (the principal’s daughter) and Jonathan Young, Jennie’s husband.
Jennie trained at the Lecoq school of physical theatre in Paris before completing a Masters in Acting at East 15. She now works as a professional actress, under the stage name Genevieve Dunne, and has toured the world and appeared both on stage and on the big screen.
Jonathan Young studied drama and performing arts at Middlesex University and has worked as a professional actor under the stage name Noah Young, for the past 10 years, specialising in Shakespeare, physical theatre and the classical cannon. Jonathan has recently completed a Masters in Movement Direction and Teaching at the prestigious Central School of Speech and Drama. Along with Jennie, they run their own company, NMT Automatics, updating ancient myths, giving them relevance to a modern audience, fusing dance and drama and taking music as a primary source of inspiration.
Both teachers are fully DBS checked
