Jodie is a well renowned actress, singer and performer, who has shot to stardom from humble beginnings. Originally from Blackpool, Lancashire, Jodie performed extensively on the cabaret and musical circuit before going on to win the part of Nancy on the West End revival of Oliver.
Following her critically lauded performance in Oliver!, Jodie stole the show as The Lady of the Lake in the UK tour of Spamalot, as well as starring as Fairy Bow Bells in Manchester Opera House’s production of Dick Whittington and portraying Dolly in The National Theatre’s production of One Man, Two Guvnors at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.
Jodie is currently touring with the Watermill Theatre for a new production of the classic musical Calamity Jane. Jodie plays the titular gun-totin’, disaster-prone heroine, who acts like a man but loves like a woman. The show takes the audience on a hilarious but heart-warming journey, as ‘Calam’ tries to get a famous music-hall star from Chicago to perform at the local saloon. Imbuing the role with her well honed acting chops, and blowing the roof off with her incredible voice, Jodie has been called ‘a force to be reckoned with’ by The Stage, and such praise is well deserved.
