About EMCo Show History Follow Us Gallery

How did you prepare for your audition?

I listened to the soundtrack over and over again, I also watched YouTube clips so that I could see how others had performed the role as well as listening to the vocals.

EMCo-Evita2016-2016-09-22smallWhat’s the most challenging part about your role?

It's a very emotional story that unfortunately is very close to my own heart. I therefore want to portray it correctly and do it the justice that it deserves.

Trying to learn a dance routine with Lance...1 2 3, 2 2 3, back 2 3 oops wrong way, 1 2 3.....

Standing in front of the company singing the songs for the first time - very scary!


2013LSoH24Which musical theatre performer do you admire and why?

I admire anyone who can get up on the stage and perform in front of an audience - especially doing it in front of their own children!

My husband Dave is the funniest person in the cast. (NB This answer was given by Jo's husband Dave)




Apart from performing, what’s another skill that you have?

I like involving myself with the behind the scenes work as well performing, so I co-ordinate the costumes and also help with the set making which I love

 It's got to be the Thursday night when all of my come to see the show - it's so nice to have family support and they help out so much during rehearsals with child care and encouragement that it feels good when you can perform the best that you can to say thank you.
