Hi, I’m Jo!
I'm a trained musical theatre actor turned theatre director and 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 onto 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!

...The children have been loving it! We have found the response from the children to be really positive. We have already booked in future sessions and cannot wait for them to start. Thank you.” Robert Mooney, Puddleduck Day Nursery, Southsea
Jo is upbeat and brings lots of energy. She engages with the children and keeps them engaged for the time she is with them. She keeps all age groups enthralled with her stories. Sharon Widnell, The Bramble Nursery and Infant School
Lots of lovely comments from children and staff. All really enjoyed it. Second time having you, won't be the last. Kirsty Seaton, The Victory Primary School

Maybe your child has a favourite story we've explored in the past? A favourite character they have met along the way?
Or we can match the story to the birthday party and take them on a magical journey to celebrate their special day!
