"I thought Emily's 'crit' of the St John Players 'See how they run' was excellent.  It was a very comprehensive and thorough piece of work, which has provided us all with some excellent feedback."


Paul Gait, St. John's players stage manager

"An excellent and detailed  adjudication. Thank you"

Susan Ryder  , St John's Players secretary.


"Acting Up is our son's favourite activity all week, by far. He is super enthusiastic about going, and comes away bubbling! Emily is a very talented teacher who clearly knows her stuff!"


Liz Sydenham

Great course for all involved. With Emily Hastings talent leading the way. Have seen her perform in many productions and her "acting skills "are first class. Enjoy all and make the most of being some of the first people on this adventure!

Caitlin (age 4), had an amazing time at drama on Saturday. She came home all excited.  We got to hear all about her yummy pretend picnic. She said she also pretended to feed some ducks and said that she took a baby swan to join the picnic. Her Nana said she could almost see and taste all the food.  - Elaine Hannan

My son really enjoys your drama sessions. He is impulsive and doesn't always cope in certain situations but this is the only group that he's wanted to attend every week! He comes alive and is thriving in class.  - Jenny Pugh


"My two boys regularly attend Acting Up! Before they began, both of them lacked confidence and were reluctant to speak in public but since they have been going to the drama classes their confidence has grown immensely. They will involve themselves in activities they previously wouldn't have dreamed off and I have noticed the positive changes in them in every day life. Above all they had a lot of fun with their friends during the sessions. I am really grateful to Emily for her help. She is amazing at what she does and I am sure many other children will benefit as mine have."   - Michaella Lewandowski

"Thank you so much for coming to do an Easter Based Drama session at our youth club. The kids responded really well to it, much better than I thought they would and it was clearly adapted to suit them. It was great fun. Thank you" - Rebekah Bickerton, Defford Youth Club


"I appreciate everything you do in your classes, they are fab and provide a fantastic opportunity for children. It takes me back to something l loved as a kid. I wish you every success with your business." - Kate, Mum of two  



"My daughter has really grown in confidence since attending acting up. Drama is her passion and she loves the classes. What's more they have actually been helping with her school work, particularly when it comes to English or producing presentations. It seems the ground work for these has been covered in drama standing her in great stead, and giving her a head start at school. Thank you" - Vicky
