schools & education

Sheila Mander and Focus Theatre run a series of Master Classes in Theatre Skills for teachers, and assess Youth Theatre productions for the Royal National theatre.

During the past four years the students from the University of Gloucestershire have worked on the annual musical with theatre professionals led by Sheila. Under her professional direction they have gained the skills and confidence to produce excellent Musical theatre performancesthroughout the County’s Theatres and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

In November 2003 Sheila was awarded an Honorary Fellowship of Gloucester University for “raising the expectations of young people and using theatre to develop confidence throughout the community of Gloucestershire.
