    Confident singer; ukulele player; basic piano and trombone; horse-riding; full driving license, experience with van driving.

    Additional Information

    I have a particular passion for parody and satire and write my own parody songs both for performance (featured live as a regular guest on Brighton podcast 'Cast Iron Theatre Podcast') and circulation on youtube and facebook (Jukebox Judey).

    About me

    I come from a strong theatre background with over a decade of experience across acting, directing, writing, stage management, musical composition, prop production and wardrobe - both design and construction. My primary strengths are in acting, directing and writing. I have acted and directed several short plays over the past 5 years, I have a high understanding of and passion for Shakespearean performance and I am also a founding member of the '5 star', award winning, all-female sketch comedy troupe, The Fannytasticals, who are currently in their third year of production.
