A Will & a Way Acting School

A Will & a Way Acting School as established by professional actor Will Travis in 2002.  Starting as a small venture in Will's home town of Leigh, the school has grown massively in the last 8 years, with classes in Horwich, Blackburn and Preston as well.  All the classes are taught by professional actors Will Travis and his partner Melanie Ash. Will is a very well known face on our television screens. He will be seen this autumn as Mr. Squires in This Is England 1986. Other credits include: Doctors, Coronation Street, Christmas at the Riviera, Casualty, Shameless, Torchwood, Sorted, Dalziel and Pascoe, The Street, Holby City, No Angels, Between The Sheets and he played the regular role of Dick Lampard in Where The Heart Is for 5 years. 
Melanie Ash started her career as a professional singer and dancer before touring in many theatre shows including The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe, A Little
Princess, Aladdin, Alice Through The Looking Glass, Day Of The Triffids and most recently the award winning Looking For JJ with Pilot Theatre company. Her TV credits include many commercials and a lead role in Bedsitcom for Channel 4, most recently she can be seen playing Colleen King in Emmerdale.
In between their acting commitments Mel and Will manage to teach all the classes themselves and Mel also runs an affiliated agency for those students seeking professional work.  Many of their students are already working professionally with starring roles in TV shows including Waterloo Road, Doctors, Moving On, Grange Hill, New Street Law and Hollyoaks with many more appearing in commercials, corporate films and award winning short films.
