Claire Hersey (redfern)

Director of Redstars


"One of the proudest moments of my life was qualifying as a teacher of drama. It was a very tough road to get there, but I did it and I have never looked back. It is the best job in the world. It's even better now that I can do the best job in the world and be my own boss doing what I love. I am very fortunate to be in this position and commit everyday to helping my students become their own star". 


Becky Armes

Redstar Teacher


"With a passion for theatre for as long as I can remember, I have been able to live my childhood dream. Working as a child actress in film and theatre, then having the opportunity to spend 3 years training professionally in Musical Theatre at the London College of Music. I have been able to work in the industry, and see how commitment and passion grows performers everyday. I am also a firm believer in the benefits of drama on mental health and child development".


Vicky Smith

Redstar Cover Teacher


What would we do without our redstar hero Vicky! When life gets in the way, Vicky is the BEST cover teacher in town to call on. We know that our redstar students are not only in safe hands with Vicky, but she will continue to keep our drama sessions buzzing!
