At an early age Josephine fell in love with musical theatre. Not destined for a life on the stage she quickly discovered a passion for stage management and technical production. Prior to her studies at NIDA, Josephine was actively involved in musical productions with her local musical society, as stage manager on a number of seasons between 2013–15.
NIDA has provided Josephine with projects and productions that have allowed her to hone her skills in stage management, growing to love the craft even more. While at NIDA she also discovered a passion for lighting programming and electronics. Keen to explore this outside of NIDA, in her semester breaks she worked for Griffin Theatre Company as Lighting Programmer.
Josephine has focused her studies on pursuing a career in musical theatre across both stage management and lighting. Josephine has fallen in love with both disciplines and is excited to see where she will end up. In her final year she completed three musical theatre secondments: Mamma Mia!, The Book of Mormon and Jersey Boys, across both the stage management and lighting departments.
In 2018, Josephine began her career in musical theatre as the Followspot Caller and Operator for the production of Jersey Boys. She is very excited about pursuing a career in touring musical theatre, in stage management and/or the lighting department.
