Jo Williams

Member from 1975 to present


My first performance in Players was a dormouse and progressed quickly to a rabbit, rainbow fairy and little girl who lived in a shoe. My big break came at 11 when I performed as Alice in Wonderland. Viva Mexico was great fun, I played the skirt swinging 'Raquelita' amongst the Aztecs. Salad Days was always a favourite and Half a Sixpence had some terrific songs. After a break from acting, my first drama role was in Rebecca, followed by Hobson's Choice and Dancing Years. Our October extravaganza will be great fun for those both on and off the stage.
