White Bear Theatre in Kennington.


Her mum, and CHS Receptionist Julie, tells us more.


“Georgia was awarded a bursary to attend CHS as I was a single mum and the fees were more than I earned at the time! She loved CHS and was involved in the choir, MUN, tour guiding, MFL debating… the list goes on and on. Interestingly, she was never really involved in the drama department, never choosing it as a subject and only briefly involved in two school plays with a chorus part and a handful of lines at best.


She was a high achiever, 10A*s at GCSE and 3 A Levels, grade A* and A and was a member of the school council. She left CHS and went to York University, achieving a 2:1 in English Literature. It was at University that her real interest in theatre began. In her second year she set up her own theatre company ‘Tripped Theatre’ and took three successful shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.


Following university Georgia was awarded a place at Mountview Academy in London where she achieved an MA in Theatre Direction. Mountview gave her so many wonderful experiences, most notably assisting Peter James CBE (affectionately known as the ‘Dumbledore’ of the theatre world). She has since assisted Rupert Graves (Room With a View, V for Vendetta, BBC’s Sherlock) and directed a play with writer David Cantor (My Family, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps).


Georgia is now a freelance Theatre Director and Associate Director of the White Bear Theatre in Kennington. She continues to work in London theatres and local theatres around the country.”
