Founder of Mushroom Theatre Company and Equal People Theatre Company.
Penni has taught dance and drama in state schools and private theatre schools for 30 years (that’s your cue to say she doesn’t look old enough!) and for the last 13 years her focus of attention has been the promotion of integration in the performing arts. Over the years Penni’s notched up experience of working with all kinds of students with different additional needs and requirements, and never lets any such needs or disability stand in the way. Her passion is the promotion and encouragement of self esteem through the social and therapeutic benefits of the performing arts.
Currently running both Mushroom Theatre Company and Equal People P.A. as well as teaching in various schools including St Nicholas Special School in Southend.
