Meet Your Principal

John Shelley

Hi, I'm Johnny and I'm delighted to be joining the Make Believe family, launching in Southark in January. I've been passionate about performing since I was the size of a peanut and ended up studying acting at the University of Northampton and have been fortunate enough to perform in theatres up and down the country, including the Crucible in Sheffield. Alongside performing l've worked with a wide variety of young people across the UK and Europe, performing for and educating children in Italy, Germany, and Turkey. Performing has given me such a wonderful pathway through life and I'm so excited to help young people pick up all the skills and confidence they need to achieve whatever they wish.
