Lisa Pugh (Drama tutor)

 

 

 

Lisa Michelle Pugh is a trained actress who found a passion for acting aged 11 and since then she has been following her dreams of becoming a professional actress. Her training in Newport Film School taught her lessons on Stanislavski, Stella Adler and Sandford Meisner and this training alongside two years in musical theatre has given her the experience and knowledge to work on various different and challenging projects. Lisa has worked on the stage and taken on such roles as Nancy in Oliver Twist and Puck in A Midsummer Night’s Dream to being cast as Lou in a ITV Wales production called In the Name of the Children. Lisa studied at Act Up North in Manchester for two years and was picked for a series of short films.
Lisa started teaching in 2015 with TV talent; she was able to apply her skills and knowledge in her classes and teach children confidence and acting skills that they could take on with them in the future.
As Lisa started her classes at 11 she is very keen to help the youth of today to follow their dreams and bring out their creative side when teaching at Little Voices.
