Kirsty McTighe

Kirsty McTighe started her career as an actor/teacher at the Playhouse Theatre – a position she was offered as a result of the partnership between BSA and Birmingham REP.

I chose to study at Birmingham School of Acting because I was interested in performing arts and working with children. I had never thought of looking for a course like Community and Applied Theatre (now known as Applied Performance (Community and Education) before, and came across this course after the UCAS deadline but it sounded very interesting so I decided to decline my drama offers and pursue it.

This course led me to something which I love and am passionate about. I am in a job which is precisely what I learnt to do on my course. I wouldn't be able to work to the standards I do now if I hadn't learnt and practiced on the applied theatre course. I am still learning more every day and loving every second!
