Glenda Ramsay started her acting career as a worm in a production of 'The Snow Queen' at the Sheffield Playhouse in 1955. Since then she has had a very versatile career as an actress, puppeteer, children's entertainer and storyteller.

After early acting experience touring with the Argyle Players and The Whatmore Players in weekly rep she moved to the West End where she had several roles in West End productions. At the same time she was cast in a number of TV productions including series two of The Likely Lads.

During the early 80's whilst looking after her family of two sons, numerous animals and photographer husband she also set up her own mobile Playtime Puppet Theatre, in which she was the puppeteer, producer, script writer and creator of the puppets.
This led to more activity in storytelling, writing short stories and verses for children including readings on local radio stations.

Most recently Glenda has been producing workshops for schools and in libraries and art centres and her new book, 'The Adventures of Moley Joe' has been published.

'Moley Joe is a survivor from the days when he was a star puppet in Glenda's 'Playtime Puppet Theatre'.

Glenda remains young at heart and is full of energy and still loves to keep working.
