Jennifer has been involved in live theatre for about 30 years (20 of them in the UK), including very large musicals, comedies, dramas and children’s theatre.

Leaving her Pro-Am musical theatre society in England and moving to the Sunshine Coast 12 years ago, she immediately embraced the local theatre scene.  Since then, she has acted, choreographed, sung, danced and directed numerous productions from Noosa to Caloundra and sees no reason to stop any time soon.

Her most recent on stage performance with Coolum Theatre Players was in “Four Weddings and an Elvis” where she played the chapel owner/marriage celebrant in all four scenes.

Jennifer lives in Twin Waters with her husband of 30 years Gil and they have 2 sons in their 20’s.  She works full time for Life Education Qld (Healthy Harold) a well-known and loved charity since 1979, a job she enjoys very much.

“Motherhood the Musical” will be the fourth production Jennifer’s been involved in with Coolum Theatre Players.
