My Favourite Things
with Ellie Kirk
We have a wonderful roster of performers at Baby Broadway, all with West End experience. To find out a little more about them, so we asked some nosy questions (whilst shoe-horning in a musical theatre pun)!
Ellie trained at the Guildford School of Acting and gained a First in BA Hons Acting. Her West End credits include Legally Blonde (Savoy Theatre), As You Like It (National Theatre), Lift (Soho Theatre), Therese Raquin (Park Theatre) but she has also worked in children’s theatre incuding Spongebob Squarepants UK Tour, and The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe (Creation Theatre).
Ellie has also appeared in television programmes such as Gigglebiz and Dick and Dom (CBBC), Genie In the House (Nickelodeon), Doctors (BBC1) and Cardinal Burns (E4).
You can book Ellie for children’s parties through her company www.dinkyparties.com, with Princess, Superhero and various other themes available!
