Balfron rising star of the stage Kirsten Browne has shone in a production of George Orwell’s classic Animal Farm recently.

The City of Glasgow College production attracted hundreds of theatre-goers to Glasgow’s Webster’s Theatre to witnessed the on-stage talents of the 22-year-old.

Kirsten said: “I loved working on the show – it was the most fun I’ve ever had. Being in a theatre to perform was mind-blowing. I’d never performed in a theatre before and I thought I’d get nervous on stage and lose my acting ability because I’d just want to get the words out. However, the setting really inspired me and I enjoyed the experience.”

Strathblane woman Kirsten and her fellow HNC Acting and Performance students have previously worked on ‘devised theatre’ projects, such as the Seven Deadly Sins performances they created and performed to students and staff at the college. However, Animal Farm signalled their first public show during their time in further education, and the on-stage experience has given them an appetite to sample more of the same.

She added: “I’ve wanted to be an actress since I was very young. The college course has been a new lease of life for me and something I really enjoy.”
