Additional Information

'Josie is a great member of any team. She's laid back and fun as well as being dedicated and determined. She is reliable and honest, kind and considerate. She is a self-starter and self-motivator and I have always found her to be hardworking, dedicated and also a great deal of fun. She's a hugely strong performer, able to turn her hand to most things. She is physically very precise and is able to maintain her consistency and her spark even over a long tour. She has strong singing voice, she is full of suggestions and is always willing to throw ideas into a rehearsal room.'
Artistic Director of Tall Stories
Olivia Jacobs

'Josie is an incredibly hard working and conscientious artist who was pro-active in the productions development. Throughout the devising and rehearsal period she applied critical thinking and rigor, contributing to the development of the story (writing) as well as to theatrical ideas. Josie manages to both lead with ideas and support others, making her a valuable asset to any devising company. Josie’s energy and positivity made her a joy to work with. She brings a useful and inspiring intellectual challenge to the process of theatre making, led by enquiry and exploration. I would not hesitate to recommend her for any theatre project, particularly ones that attempt to push boundaries and explore new forms.'
Artistic Director of Action Transport Theatre
Nina Hajiyianni

'Josie Cerise is a hugely talented performer, extremely hard working and diligent in her approach. Her energy and enthusiasm are paramount in all she does. She has great comedic skills, strong physical performance ability and a terrific singing voice. She is a motivated, thoughtful team member and will offer 100% commitment to any project.'
Artistic Director of NTC
Gillian Hambleton


'Having worked with Josie, during a very hectic Christmas schedule, I would recommend her to future employers and will work with her again in the future. Josie is open to direction, takes risks and is incredibly supportive of the process and other cast members.'
Associate Director of Northern Stage
Mark Calvert
