After running a drama school for many years at a small local theatre, Valerie Harris decided to set up her own school with fellow tutors John Banks and Peter Ning. Being a very popular and successful teacher, her former students followed her and Altrincham Creative Theatre School (A. C. T. S.) was born on 10th Sept 2010. The production values and acting qualities have been so high that every year they have won awards for their plays. This has been a great achievement and 2015 sees A, C. T. S. celebrate its 5th birthday.
Committee members, parents, supporters and past students joined Head Tutor Valerie Harris and her tutors and current members of A.C.T.S. recently to mark this milestone. At A.C.T. S. young people are taught about all aspects of theatre and encouraged to express themselves. Through active teaching and workshops run by theatre professionals this has resulted in students talents being showcased on stage. It has also seen others direct productions and write their own plays which have been performed by the group.
Valerie says “We have and will continue to always act in the best interests of our students especially with the teaching of drama. Trust, loyalty commitment, dedication and friendship are values we hold dear.”
Valerie is very happy to hear from anyone who would like to help as a further tutor for the youth section so if anyone would like to get involved then please get in touch with her.
