Her Story...

After her graduation, Hollie pursued a professional career with many credits to her name, including Singing as part of BBC Performing Arts Choir in Sondheim at 80 Prom (Royal Albert Hall), Cinderella (Mercury Theatre, Colchester) and Irish National Lottery Commercial to name but a few.

Hollie also has many years of teaching experience and loves overseeing all aspects of Mad Hatters, as well as leading the wonderful Mini Hatters and teaching the discipline of Dance for the Junior and Senior Hatters.


Hollie’s versatile and fun nature creates a buzz within the School and not only do her students feel engaged but also challenged and enthused.


Her wealth of both professional performance and teaching experience led her to open Mad Hatters Theatre School in June 2011, which enabled her to continue educating children and young people of the local area in the arts of acting, singing and dancing to which hundreds upon hundreds of students have now benefitted in the past decade.

Hollie is so VERY proud and passionate about the development of Mad Hatters Theatre School and its students. She is thrilled that “Mad Hatters” attracts motivated performers and endeavours to make the very best of their talents and as you will find out, once a Mad Hatter, always a Mad Hatter. 


Hollie cannot wait to meet any new budding Mad Hatters and to introduce them to the Mad Hatters family!
