Sheree is a very experienced director, drama facilitator and writer with 30 years of experience, working with a wide variety of ages, abilities and communities.

She is the artistic director and founder of SAVVY Theatre Company, the author of several books on Applied Theatre, and an inclusive practise specialist who has received numerous awards, including the National Creative & Cultural Skills: Creative Choices Award.

Sheree started facilitating drama workshops for young people in the late 1990's working with many organisations including London Bubble, Polka Theatre, the Shakespeare Schools Festival, Soho Theatre, the Globe, Mousetrap Theatre Projects, the Royal Academy of Dance and was the Education Officer at Unicorn Theatre.

Her first series of play scripts for young people was published in 1999 and since then she has written two further books, multiple teacher handbooks and many articles on applied theatre, inclusive practise and working with youth and community groups.

 

In 2007 she established SAVVY Theatre Company which brought all of her combined experience as a street performer, facilitator writer and director together to create community through theatre.

Sheree originally trained as an actress, graduating in 1992 with a BFA from QUT, Creative Industries in Brisbane, Australia.  She then moved to London and started Street Performing in Covent Garden.

The 1990's was spent perfoming on the street and working as an actress in theatre throughout the UK, across North America and even returning briefly to Australia to work with Queensland Theatre.  She also had minor appearances in a number of TV shows including The Bill and One Foot in the Grave.

 

In addition to street performing, Sheree was also a regular on the London stand-up comedy circuit, performing at festivals and venues across the UK, Australia and North America with headlining gigs at the Vancouver International Comedy Festival and the Women-in-Comedy gala at the Edmonton Street Performers Festival.  She was also featured on Funny Business for LWT and eventually retired from street performing on the Graham Norton show in 2003.

Her continued professional development training included a Level-1 BADC Stage Combat qualification, attending clowning and movement workshops with a variety of artists and companies and month-long residency intensives at Shakespeare & Company in America.  She also completed her Bronze & Silver Shakespeare Awards at RADA.
