About

Helen Millington BA (Hons) MSTSD

Lincoln School of Speech and Drama

I have spent many years working in theatre, writing, acting, directing and stage managing and returned to education as a mature student, graduating from the Lincoln School of Performing Arts (LSPA) at the University of Lincoln with an honours degree in Drama. During my studies, I undertook a number of specialisms including Twentieth Century American Drama, Aspects of Acting, Early Modern Drama, Theatre and Consciousness and Restoration to Melodrama. Following graduation, I began teaching speech and drama privately, tutoring students through Trinity certificates, assisting with voice techniques and all aspects of theatre and performance skills.

I am a member of the Society of Teachers of Speech and Drama (STSD) and I teach with Reach Performers Company on Sundays in Lincoln.

I am currently studying for a Masters in Drama at the University of Lincoln, focusing on Contemporary British Theatre. I am a trustee of the Wolfit Festival of Drama and Verse in Newark and a member of the Lincoln Music and Drama Festival committee.

In addition, I hold certificates from the London Academy of Music and Drama (LAMDA) in Acting (Honours), Guildhall School of Music and Drama in Speech and Drama (Merit) and Prose Reading (Honours).

I am also an Ambassador for the Terry O'Toole Theatre in North Hykeham, Lincoln.

I have an Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) certificate, formerly known as a Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check. Certificate available to view upon request.

Please note, I am not a speech therapist.
