About the Instructor

The Drama Box was created by managing director Kirsten McCrossan. Kirsten is a dedicated and passionate drama practitioner who established The Drama Box to help promote more drama across education by providing fun, relaxed and useful training sessions that are uplifting, confidence-building and a good laugh too! 

She has built a team of like-minded individuals who are passionate about the nurturing, creative and pupil-led approach to drama which Kirsten is an advocate for.   

The Drama Box has developed an Online Learning Area which includes our brand new Online Drama Starter Pack, our Teachers' Online Course and our Drama Progression Framework. 

The Online Drama Starter Pack has been designed for both educators who are not sure where to begin when it comes to exploring and delivering drama and for those who are looking for some inspiration!

"Nothing short of inspirational." Peter Kelly, Curriculum Development Officer, South Lanarkshire Council

Kirsten is a true professional and a credit to the arts." Angela Salkeld, Theatre Arts School Owner, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne

"Kirsten's deliverance of techniques needed for improv comedy and acting in general are some of the best and most unique ways I've been taught at drama." Calum Johnston, Former Pupil, Musselburgh, East Lothian

"The confidence my son has in performance now, definitely stems from the nurturing approach delivered by Kirsten in the beginning. I highly recommend drama for all children and especially recommend Kirsten." Jane Chrumka, Parent of Former Pupil, Edinburgh City
