After working in theatre, television, and film in Canada, Adrienne moved to Singapore where she was a key player in the start up of ACE School of Performing Arts and began her passion for teaching drama.

After returning to Vienna she worked closely with the Vienna based theatre company, Vienna Theatre Project, as a director, (Speaking in Tongues, Andrew Bovell, and Closer, Patrick Marber), and as an actor (The Vagina Monologues, Victoria, A Moment on the Lips). In 2006 she studied at L'Ecole Phillip Gaulier in Paris. In 2008 Adrienne became a member of the International School Theatre Association (ISTA), an organisation which invites professional artists to facilitate theatre workshops internationally; a project which has so far brought her to Lisbon, Rome and Dusseldorf. Adrienne is passionate about drama as a way of learning about ourselves and the world we live in. "An education in drama opens up the heart and the imagination, and provides invaluable experience in working with others as a member of an ensemble." Adrienne also currently teaches acting and scene study at the 1st Film Academy in Vienna.

Ariana Pullano

Ariana grew-up in the Washington, D.C area.  She attended the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. and majored in Vocal Performance.  Upon graduating magna-cum-laude in 2004, she began teaching music at Saint Ann Catholic School in Arlington, Virginia and immediately the music program flourished. Two new children’s choirs were formed and soon she was also asked to lead the Saint Ann Parish Choir.  In 2005, Ariana began a Master of Music in Opera Performance at the University of South Carolina.  After the completion of her Master’s degree, she performed in numerous theater productions, worked with Opera Carolina, and in 2007 was the State winner of the Metropolitan Opera Competition.

Ariana has appeared in several theater, musical theater, operetta and opera productions in Italy and all over the United States.  Her credits include Postcard from Morocco (Foreign Singer/Lady with a Hat Box), Le docteur miracle (Veronique), The Merry Widow (Olga/Clo-Clo),  Die Fledermaus (Prince Orlofsky), Die Zauberflöte (Zweite Dame), The Sound of Music (Mother Abbess), Mourning Becomes Elektra (Christine), and The Merchant of Venice (Jessica), to name a few.

Since her move to Vienna, Austria in 2007, Ariana has concentrated on teaching and finds working with children to be more rewarding than work on stage.  She has designed and taught an English-speaking Drama class at Teatro and is currently the head music teacher at the Vienna Elementary School, in Preschool through grade four. In addition, she is completing a certification in the Dalcroze teaching method.  She believes strongly in the power of music, as Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said, “Music is the universal language of mankind.”  It can teach us about ourselves, show us the culture of others and yet through it we are all connected.

Howard Nightingall

Howard trained at The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts, and is an associate of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.

He has taught Drama at Bush Davies Theatre Arts and at Bird College in London, and more recently in Vienna at Film Academy and Schauspielschule Krauss.

Interested in all aspects of the arts Howard has also worked as a Project Co-ordinator for ITV, Capital Radio and The Evening Standard. This has included devising drama workshops at Covent Garden’s Theatre Museum, the coordination of the ‘Our London Arts Project’, and the running and organization of ‘The Millennium Line’ for the City of London.

Howard first worked for Vienna’s English Theatre 19 years ago as The Young Man in the World Première of Three Tall Women, directed by Edward Albee. Since then he has worked in many productions at the theatre, and favourite roles include Malcolm in Bedroom Farce, The Surley Man in Lettice and Lovage with Rue McClanahan, William Humphries in 84 Charing Cross Road, Inspector Egan in Murder by Misadventure, Ross in the European Première of The Goat, Barnette Lloyd in Crimes of the Heart, William Taylor in Donkeys’ Years, Dr Feldman in Duet For One and most recently as Michel Vallon in God of Carnage.

SHOWTIME is a project that has been talked about for some time and Howard is incredibly excited to be a part of it. Not only because it’s Vienna’s first English-language Youth Performing Arts school, but also because he feels the school has so much to offer.

His aim is to make sure the school is a place where students are valued, real confidence is borne and harnessed, and where ambitions and talents are recognized and encouraged.
