SUSIE FOY

With over 30 years experience teaching primary aged children, I have always been dedicated to find ways to enhance children's creative learning. I have been the manager of two nursery aged settings - in the UK and Germany - and loved being the Deputy Head in a local school in Warwick. For the last five years, I have taught as part of the Learning Team with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, where I create and deliver educational workshops and stories about Shakespeare for preschool and primary aged children. I started my own company this year to provide a wide range of bespoke stories, workshops and parties across the Midlands.

I have always had a huge passion for all aspects of the theatre and performing arts - from professionally acting as a child, specialising in Creative Arts as a primary school teacher and undertaking many arts projects throughout my career. In September, I performed in a 2 person play FORGING REMBRANDT with Lanternfish Promotions and Simon Kemp at the The Bear Pit in Stratford-upon-Avon.  In October, I will be performing an adaptation of Phantom of the Opera, written my Tony Peters, in Holy Trinity Church, Stratford upon Avon, alongside Simon Kemp and Mark Spriggs.

This very special company has children at its heart. The ImagiMill inspires children through the imaginative world of stories. Children immerse themselves in an interactive storytelling experience. While taking part in the storytelling, children see themselves actively telling and shaping the tale. With a passion for education, Early Years and the theatre, I am able to to create stories around children and their needs and understanding, regardless of age or ability.
