Ellen is from Carrick-on-Suir Co.Tipperary and is currently studying Theatre and Drama Studies in the Cork School of Music. Ellen has been involved in the arts from a very early age, and she joined Carrick-on-Suir Musical Society in 2015 where she stared in her first pantomime “Snow White and the Babes in the Wood”. Ellen has been involved with every production within the society since then either on stage or behind the scenes.
In 2017 Ellen joined Bellvue Academy of Performing Arts as a vocal student of Keith Dwyer-Greene and that same year joined the “Performerz” Drama class appearing as Tanya in Bellvue Academy’s production of “Dancing Queen” in 2018. In 2019 got to put some elements of her training in CSM so far to the test by operating lights for the 2019 production of “Hairspray”. In 2018 she also obtained a Grade 6 Distinction in Voice with LCM. Ellen is also a member of CIT Musical Society and played the role of Rose in this year’s inter-varsity entry “Working” where they won the award of best Chorus.
In 2018, Ellen was selected as a Mentor for the Theatre Totz group in Bellvue and loved working with the young students. This is an area she feels she is particularly suited to as working with these students bring back fond memories of how she felt as a young girl starting out in the world of performance. Ellen is delighted to be joining the Bellvue teaching staff for the 2019 season and cannot wait to get started.
