Jen's classes are fun, exciting and allow me to feel free to express myself. I'd never gone to a drama class before, and am grateful for the opportunity to tap into my own inner creative child during each class - I highly recommend it and can't wait for the next one! (Adult Drama - Rivash Maharaj)

TESTIMONIAL

Before I joined JBM Theatre, I had a vision but I didn't know how to make that vision a reality. When I met Jen in 2018, I was so shy that I couldn't even drink coffee with her! I went for my first drama lesson in 2018, in order to build my confidence and it has made me a completely new person. My confidence has sky-rocketed. So I can definitely recommend Jen. She has helped me make my vision a reality. I have performed in my first theatre show on stage and am currently working as an extra in a local movie. I find job interviews and auditions easier and less stressful. Jen has taught me that it is okay to be me and that we all have a story worth celebrating. Jen is friendly and welcoming. She creates a non-judgemental environment for her students so they will feel comfortable and secure. I am still a work in progress, but I would never have been able to take that first step without Jen and now I can drink plenty of cups of coffee with her without wanting to curl up into a ball and disappearing!
