MEET THE TEAM

ESTHER STANFORD

DIRECTOR AND FOUNDER

Esther is a professional actress/writer/director/producer who learnt her craft at the renowned ITV/Central Junior Television Workshop.

Esther has a very varied career starring in many television shows (including Eastenders, Heartbeat, The Bill and Doctors), adverts (including Playstation), various theatre productions (including performing at The Swan Theatre Stratford and in an award winning show at The Edinburgh Festival), voiceovers and played the lead in 2 award winning films. 

As a writer she has had 2 plays at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, has her own character based comedy YouTube channel ‘Who I Am Today’ and has 2 television shows in different stages of production, with a pilot of one of them being shot early 2019.

She is regularly seen on tour with The Fizzogs - aka the internet sensations The Dancing Grannies who have amassed over 300 million views worldwide on the internet - and compered their sketch show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2016.


Having worked in theatre, television, radio and film Esther feels a need to give back some of the wonderful experiences that she had during her ITV Workshop days and help children with a passion and interest in drama to achieve their potential and have fun!
