Director and Founder of Star Project
In her words…“I wanted to create a place that would remain with these children for the rest of their lives. I think we did that!”
Jo graduated from The Midlands Academy of Dance and Drama with a distinction in 2006, along with her Teaching Associate qualification with IDTA. Since then Jo has had extensive professional experience within the arts with credits in TV, film and theatre.
After graduating it was Jo’s vision to create a happy and inspiring theatre school that had a family atmosphere in the area where she had grown up.
Jo’s vision was a place where children could discover and grow their talents, build confidence and learn skills every week where she and her team could “capture their imagination”.
Over a decade later and The Star Project has welcomed over a thousand children through its doors. As SP continues to flourish, Jo runs head office from her new home in Canada and supports our first international franchise. Jo always returns to direct the big summer show and remains at the heart of all SP is!
