Ferne Reynolds Lategan : Founder, Creative Director and Facilitator

DRAMA SCENE was founded by Ferne Reynolds Lategan in 2008. Ferne is a qualified speech and drama professional and holds an Honors Degree in BA Dramatic Art.

Having lived in Dubai since 2003, Ferne decided to return to her first love, drama and founded DRAMA SCENE with around 30 students. Under her vision and guidance the school has grown into the largest skill based performing arts school the region as well as the largest private LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) Exam centre in the Middle East. Ferne believes in combining technique with creativity in order to offer drama as more than just a past time but a life long skill set. Under her guidance, many of her teen students have been accepted into top drama courses within international universities and drama schools across the UK, US and Canada in an effort to pursue careers in performance.

Aside from teaching and managing DRAMA SCENE across the ME, Ferne adjudicates interschool debating, performing and public speaking events in and around Dubai and produces and delivers corporate workshops. She is further passionate about directing and in 2012 co-directed Love, Loss and What I Wore written by Nora Ephron. Ferne herself is no stranger to performing. Whether on stage, in front of a camera or co hosting the awards ceremony for The Dubai International Film Festival Ferne is at home in front of an audience. Her experience covers numerous stage productions, soap operas and cameos in international films.
