About Anna Scher

Anna Scher, the visionary force behind the Anna Scher Theatre, left an indelible mark on the realm of performing arts education.

Founded in 1968 in Islington, Greater London, her theatre emerged as a symbol of inclusivity, particularly for working-class students.

Scher’s groundbreaking philosophy sought to foster love, peace, and understanding through a blend of learning and professionalism.

The Anna Scher Theatre, an early advocate for accessible performing arts education, embodies her commitment to breaking barriers.

Beyond her pivotal role in education, Scher chaired the International Song Contest for Peace in Ireland and contributed as a jury member for prestigious institutions like BAFTA, the Sony Awards, and the Royal Television Society.

Her acting credits include memorable roles in productions such as “The Battle of St. George Without” (1969), “You Must Be Joking!” (1974), and “Anna” (2011).
