Favourite Mountview Experience

What is Mountview like?

It's hard work. Amy has learned so many valuable tips. You work with fantastic directors, MD's and choreographers from the west end and beyond. Days often start at 8:25 and end at 6 but everyone there loves what they do so it's truly worth it!

What Next?

Amy has an acting agent now so hopefully she will work in TV, film theatre and radio... she wants to try everything!

Amy is currently directing WOW!'s next show Our House. She has also helped to run the recent WOW! summer schools.
