Performers Management & Agency
PMA aims to facilitate the students of Performers College whilst still in training to gain valuable experience and guide them towards a successful career and beyond. PMA has built up strong links with leading industry professionals and companies, and their clients’ impressive destinations are proof of this.
PMA was launched in 2006 by Mandy Oliver who trained at Bush Davies & Bird College. Following a successful and varied career within the industry she took on the challenging role of running PMA. In 2008, as the agency evolved, Tina Holmes, already an established agent, was appointed to help run this ever expanding agency. Together they have a wealth of knowledge, great connections and a true passion for the industry.
The commitment to the students’ professional path is exemplary. The single focus for career opportunities drives the in-house agency to strive for excellence within the arts industry. Over the years the objective has been to foster a culture, encompassing a diverse range of industry placements. This has allowed for a broad spectrum of job and networking opportunities.
Through expert nurturing and continued professional guidance, we are confident that the calibre of our graduating student is upheld. The in-house team believes they can best leverage the students’ unique talents and abilities to support their professional goal.
Aims & Objectives
The agency’s strategic aims and objectives enhance greatly on the students journey towards the employability skill set. We continue to invite up to date, on trend industry creatives in all genres to work with our graduating year all of whom offer a true reflection of today’s industry.
Whilst we pride ourselves on the industry connections we nurture, it is equally important for us to forge and maintain strong links with external Agents who offer both Musical Theatre and Commercial representation for our graduate’s onward journey.
