Caroline Clegg - Director

Caroline Clegg is the founder of Feelgood and brings twenty years of experience to creating and leading workshops. She was recently awarded the Horniman Award at the Manchester Evening News Theatre Awards for “her outstanding contribution to live theatre in Manchester” and is the John Thaw Fellow at Manchester University where she leads seminars in performance and directing. She was a member of staff at the Royal Northern College of Music in the Opera Department, taught at Cheethams School and works regularly with the Halle Orchestra, Opera North and Celebrity Pig, a company of actors who are learning disabled. She regularly delivers motivational speeches and master-classes at all levels from senior school to senior management and is passionate that the power of drama and music is transformational; whether in giving lasting confidence to deliver management presentations or teenage confidence to stand up to bullying and say no to drugs.

Allison Clarke - Designer

Allison Clarke works primarily in music theatre and has collaborated with Feelgood for over 12 years. She also works at the Arden School of Theatre and Opera North, Scottish Opera and Welsh National Opera freelance education teams.

She has also collaborated with Caroline Clegg on projects such as the music theatre piece by Nicola Lefanu Dawnpath at the Royal Northern College of Music, Barber of Seville at Civit Hills Opera and A Feast Fables at The Bridgewater Hall involving 6 schools. She also designed the eclectic spectacular Mystery Plays in York Minster working with 180 children and designs each year for Blackpool Grand’s Youth Project.

Sonya Moorhead - Workshop Leader

Sonya Moorhead is a free lance performer and community artist working predominantly in the North West.  She trained at Manchester Metropolitan University School of Theatre and for the past five years has had the privilege of performing professionally with companies such as Feelgood Theatre, Horse and Bamboo Theatre, Collective Encounters, Walk the Plank and Pif-Paf.  She believes theatre can be a beautiful, transformational experience for the audience and performers a like and that opportunity should be open to whole communities not just regular theatre goers.  This enthusiasm to widen participation has naturally drawn her to work in site-specific and street theatre.

Sonya is an experienced Community Artist and has delivered workshops for young people in performance and visual arts on behalf of Halle for Youth, the Lowry, BBC, Space Cadets, Pif-Paf, Jersey Arts Centre and Ordsall Community Arts.
