Founder

Hi! My name is Natalie Ashworth.

Drama and Performance has been a part of my life for as long as I remember. I have a BA Honors degree in Drama and for the last 10 years I have been working as a teacher and a leader within secondary education. I have always been passionate about Drama and Performance and I wanted to share my experiences with the younger generations in hope that I would inspire them too. 

It wasn’t until I worked within education that I realized just how powerful Drama & the Creative Arts are. The difference it can make to a person through the use of expression, creativity, freedom and a sense of belonging. It didn’t matter if it was those with academic understanding or those with a slightly more deprived background. The positive culture it created, the academic results and interpersonal skill developments were outstanding.

After spending time within education and ‘perfecting my craft’ I felt inspired to provide wider arts opportunities to the community and empower children and adults to enjoy and achieve their potential and this is when Through the Stage Door was born.
