Our Story

A5 NEW PW-page-001.jpg

Performworks Productions was founded and is directed by Charlotte Cattrall who was once a shy and quiet child who lacked confidence and self-esteem but who loved the theatre and singing. At every Parents evening, her Parents were told by Teachers that she was a hardworking student but was reluctant to get involved in class discussions so she needed to find her voice and speak up more. She enrolled in LAMDA Speech & Drama lessons at school taught by an inspiring and supportive teacher in a bid to build her communication skills and and she thrived. The highlight of her week was that hour where she could express herself, become someone else and share this with her friends.


The transformation was exceptional, she joined the debate team, excelled in public speaking, performed professionally for King Charles III and achieved Drama awards and gold medals in Speech & Drama festivals. Her literacy, school attendance and academics also improved and she went on to achieve highly in her other subjects too. And thus, Performworks Productions was born under her guidance, a beacon of inspiration for all who seek to find their voice and share their magic with the world. She started Performworks to help other young people experience the same transformation in their confidence, self-esteem and achievements. 

Charlotte has worked as a successful Drama teacher and Head of Drama in various outstanding secondary schools in London and Hong Kong for the last 12 years. She is a LAMDA Examiner, freelance Director, Actor and Practitioner. She has a BA (hons.) in Drama & Theatre Studies from Royal Holloway University of London and a PGCE Secondary English with Drama from UCL IOE with QTS. Charlotte specialises in teaching Acting and Musical Theatre and has trained with various world leading theatre companies including Frantic Assembly, The Paper Birds, Gecko and Juilliard School of New York education specialists.
