Hattie is a theatre maker, performer, singer, and drama facilitator with a master’s degree in Theatre and Performance from Northumbria University. Razzamataz holds a special place in her heart as someone who attended Razz Yeovil as a Senior student ‘back in the day’! Hattie is co-founder of theatre company and drag trio ‘Bonnie and The Bonnettes’ who spend their time creating original and bold theatre and cabaret work, which they tour nationally. She has also started to work on the writing for her one-person show and has taken up poetry and creative writing to help pass the time over the past year, as well as singing on social media to keep friends and family entertained. Performing is Hattie’s greatest passion and she loves that she gets to do it as a job. Hattie feels that there is a need for the arts within education, and that it provides young people with so much more than performance skills!
