Jenny Powell

16 appearances in RDG productions

As a child Jenny appeared in two RDG productions - Man of the Moment and The Visit. Her first major adult appearance was as one of the glamorous showgirls in Copacabana. Her next appearance was in the award-winning Interview, the first production from the RDG Youth Theatre workshop in 2005. A month later she appeared as one the nurses in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - a great contrast to her role as Alice in the twenties musical Thoroughly Modern Millie in 2006. Autumn 2008 was a very busy time for Jenny as appeared in the award-winning Youth production of Find Me, followed by by her feisty performance in our hugely popular musical Mack and Mabel. Jenny gave some fine vocal performances in All that JazZ - an A - Z of Musicals - following which he featured in our exuberant musical Crazy For You. In 2015 Jen scored a big hit in the Dolly Parton role in Nine to Five and an equally successful performance as the delightful Polly Peachum in The Beggar's Opera in 2016. The following year she played young Susan in our audience-pleasing musical White Christmas. Jenny's fine singing voice was featured in our notable musical Chess.
