A message from Samantha

I am so excited to start teaching at Kristian Thomas Company. After recently watching one of the productions, I was blown away by the professionalism and talent of the students. It is clear that the staff help the students develop their skills in a positive and encouraging environment. The level of training offered is second to none, and I am really looking forward to joining the team in September.
