Karen Gillan is laying a pathway down for future companions and Doctors by return to her roots toÂ become Eden Court Theatre’s Arts Education Ambassador.
Gillan first trod the boards at the Inverness Theatre back when she was a pupil at Charleston Academy and in the theatre’s new season brochure said:
â€œEden Court provides great opportunities for studying theatre, dance and film-making. I did a lot of my initial training with them, including my higher drama and completing my London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art certification.
â€œI had my first real experience of acting with Eden Court and it was their knowledge and experience that encouraged me to pursue a career in the arts.â€
Theatre directorÂ Colin Marr said:
â€œKarenâ€™s appointment is great news for the theatre. Itâ€™s very good of her to become its ambassador. For us, the education work is such a big part of what we do here, and Iâ€™m not sure everyone understands the breadth of it, so having Karen endorse it will help.â€
Along with Miss Gillan’s appointment the theatre have also released highlights of their Spring season including a production of Arthur Miller’s Death ofÂ a Salesman, a return visit from the Rambert Dance Company and Swan Lake on Ice.
