Chloe Adele Edwards

Artistic Director 

Chloe opened Proscenium Stage School in 2017 alongside her very successful performing career. She wanted children in West Lothian to gain the same skills in performing arts that she got from attending theatre school in Glasgow without having to travel too far. Chloe adores teaching and giving a very realistic insight to the performing arts business. Therefore, she only employs Professional Performers to teach her students. This ensures that their training is very up to date and commercial.

Sheldon is a highly dedicated, meticulous and successful Managing Director. He has been with Proscenium from the very beginning and is a great supporter of our company’s values and ethos.

He has a very approachable personality and is willing to help out where possible. Sheldon is usually around in class to assist our teachers and always adds the fun element to performing. He is a highly respected member of our team and we are very lucky to have him at Proscenium.
