Josephine has been appointed Theatre Ambassador for legendary London theatre restaurant Joe Allen. Joe’s has always been closely associated with theatre, since it first opened in Exeter Street, WC2 in 1977, but in their new location at 2 Burleigh Street this relationship is being expanded. Joe’s are now sponsors of the Debut Awards for The Stage, and are also sponsoring ‘Best West End Show’, the biggest and most prestigious award category for the enormously successful theatre site Whatsonstage. Among their upcoming initiatives are Show Of The Month, and Performance Brunches with live performances from current West End Shows.

It was a great honour to be asked to produce the 21st Anniversary Gala for the truly excellent and groundbreaking charity, Mousetrap Theatre Projects. Taking place at the stunning Prince Of Wales Theatre, current home of Book Of Mormon in the West End, and with performances from cast members of The Lion King, Dreamgirls, Mamma Mia!, the Royal Ballet and more, it was a rich and varied evening’s entertainment. The musical director was the super talented MD of We Will Rock You, Matt Smith, who led one of the best bands it has ever been my privilege to work with.

Currently:

Josephine has worked on behalf of Mousetrap Theatre Projects, helping to raise the profile of this exceptional charity. In 2016 Picturehouse Cinemas featured a promo for the charity fronted by one of their patrons, Eddie Redmayne.

Josephine produced the Mousetrap’s 21st Anniversary Gala on Sunday March 18th 2018 at the Prince Of Wales theatre.

Kent Cultural Celebration

Josephine produced and directed the 2016 Kent Cultural Celebration featuring the most talented under-21s in the county. One of the lead performers in the show was a young man called Wilfred Jenkins who is profoundly deaf, his performance was an inspiration to all those with special needs who think the world of performing arts is beyond their reach.

Josephine received a British Empire Medal in the Queen’s 90th Birthday Honours, she was also made an Amabassador for Kent in recognition of her work for the young people of that county.

In addition to my passion for first class commercial theatre, I also seek to develop the skills of young people, many of whom are struggling in the education system, within the framework of performing arts.
