This year, it’s her turn.
Having a six month old baby doesn’t stop Jeanne Marshall, 35, of Yarabilba who is using her maternity leave to act and sing.
Ms Marshall is doing this three times a week as a chorus member of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, being performed by the Beenleigh Theatre Group at its Crete Street based theatre.
This is Ms Marshall’s second show at the theatre, having performed the leading role of Miss Mona in the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas in 2015.
“It’s just so much fun. I love the spirit and being with like minded people. And I love singing in particular. There’s something special about working with people with the common goal of putting on a fabulous show. And this is a fabulous show with a lot of talented people doing their finest work,” Ms Marshall said.
With a husband, Mark Reynolds, also “into theatre”, Ms Marshall said they had decided to alternate their theatre work with her year this year and his next.
“That way we both to get to pursue what we love,” she said.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat is musically directed by Joanne Wolfe, choreographed by Nicola Stavar and directed byt Angela Clarke. performances are at 7.30pm on June 24 and 25 and on July 1,2,8,9 with 2pm matinee shows on June 25 and July 2 and 9.
