Jill Priest

Jill Priest Actor, Voice Over Artist, Choreographer

Originally from Sheffield, Jill was brought up on stage, dancing from the age of 4 and appearing in pantos and variety shows throughout her childhood. At Durham University she continued to perform, co-founding InStep Dance Group and appearing in and choreographing numerous musicals, as well as going to the Edinburgh Fringe in a comedy revue.
Jill went on to train in Acting and Musical Theatre at Mountview Academy and acted professionally (mainly theatre and audio recording) before starting a family, when she turned her hand to song-writing. She has written a number of songs for children, including a modern pop nativity, 'AlterNativity', and the songs for children's show 'Lily and Bear' (www.lilyandbearproductions.com). She also writes songs on commission for plays. Jill has acted extensively with a wide variety of companies including the Company of Ten, OVO, Irrational Theatre, Maramalade Theatre Company and Act One Pantomimes, and is as comfortable with panto as Shakespeare. As a choreographer, she has choreographed both traditional musicals and musical versions of Shakespeare plays. Jill has more recently entered the Voice Over industry, which perfectly brings together her talent for characterisation and her sound editing skills.
Jill is the Director for Project Sunshine, a charity that encourages children in rural China to learn English by staging a musical show in a week.
