A graduate of the Conservatory of Music & Drama and the Royal Irish Academy of Music, Christine trained in piano and voice, holds a first-class Masters in Directing from Dublin City University, and is an accredited coach with the global network, Vocology in Practice.
With over thirty years’ experience in professional theatre – as a performer and director – Christine has produced and directed productions at all the major Irish venues, including the Olympia Theatre, Cork Opera House, National Opera House, Gaiety Theatre and National Concert Hall, and in 2018 directed a new musical at New York’s Symphony Space, Broadway, following a short US tour.
She was an original faculty member of the first ever musical theatre degree course in Ireland, where she lectured in voice, acting and music theatre history, and continues to be active as a guest lecturer and masterclass facilitator. In her private vocal practice, she has a proven track record in contributing to the success of actors and singers: until the pandemic struck, her clients were playing leading roles on Broadway, the West End, and major Irish venues including The Abbey and The Gate Theatre. Christine is Artistic Director of Red Alchemy Theatre Company and Voice Studio, Musical Director of the female vocal group, Alchemy, and Owner of The Voice Industry.
