Joe Hodgkinson as Dame Polly
Joe trained at the Sylvia Young Theatre School and Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, both in London. After graduating, he spent four years travelling Europe as a Caberet performer. He returned to South Yorkshire in 2014 and became Artistic Director of the Dearne Playhouse. Since returning Joe has written, directed, choreographed and performed in many productions, both amateur and professional.
Joe is thrilled to be part of the Dearne pantomime for a third year running as director and his sixth year as a performer. He is also very excited to be premiering his brand new pantomime script here at the playhouse.
