About Luv2act And Kim Henry

Kim Henry


Kim Henry (BA hon­ors degree in Drama, Man­ches­ter Uni­ver­sity, UK) has been run­ning com­mu­nity and children’s drama projects around the world for over twenty years. Born in the UK, Kim’s work has taken her to Bosn­ian refugee camps, Indian schools, Inter­na­tional The­ater Fes­ti­vals and now to the sandy shores of Wilm­ing­ton and to the artistic family of Dreams.

Kim runs her own theatre company for children ‘Luv2act,’ and is one of the founding members and directors of Theatre For All – Wilmington’s first theatre company for people with disabilities. She fuses her love of the­atre, puppetry, spoken word, dance and music in order to nur­ture the cre­ative process, self expres­sion and pro­duce excit­ing, inno­v­a­tive shows.




LUV2ACT  was born in 2003 in the moun­tains of South­ern Spain where Kim lived with her hus­band and 2 chil­dren. Through­out the last 15 years, LUV2ACT has pro­duced mul­ti­ple shows every year with lit­er­ally hun­dreds of chil­dren from all walks of life. 


LUV2ACT has also pro­duced short films, music videos, and cre­ative writ­ing pub­li­ca­tions. 


LUV2ACT likes to use recy­cled and reclaimed mate­ri­als for their cos­tumes and sets, as a reflec­tion of their eco-friendly ideals!


Kim moved to Wilm­ing­ton, NC in 2011 with her hus­band and 2 chil­dren and has been pro­duc­ing shows ever since. She is a board mem­ber of The­atreNow, has pio­neered Wilmington’s first The­atre Com­pany for Folks with Dis­abil­i­ties and won awards for her con­tri­bu­tion to Wilmington’s the­atre community.

“Our per­form­ers are from a wide range of back­grounds; geo­graph­i­cally, eco­nom­i­cally and cul­tur­ally. Drama encour­ages them to find the com­mon ground between them­selves in a cre­ative and pos­i­tive way. LUV2ACT  gives our per­form­ers an under­stand­ing of the­atre skills and drama tech­niques whilst simul­ta­ne­ously inspir­ing many invalu­able lessons. That’s the magic of the­atre!” Kim Henry.
