"Hi, I’m Jo!
I'm a trained musical theatre actor turned theatre director turned teacher!
For as long as I can remember performing and the arts has been my one big love. So much so that it has gone on to inspire my professional life. Having been a youth theatre leader for 10+ years, I have had the pleasure of watching children grow in confidence both in themselves and the world around them. I know how powerful and exciting involvement within drama can be!  I am very excited to be getting started with the Ashcroft Arts Centre, and getting to know all of the youth company's actors!  Let's bring up the lights and open the curtains, it's time for the show to begin!" 

Tickets: from £54 for the 12 week term.
