Jill Colby, L.G.S.M. G.o.D.A.

Jill has worked in the professional theatre for over 40 years as actor and director, working with several generations, from Vivian Leigh to Richard Griffiths, and from John Gielgud to Howard Davies and Rupert Goold. Adjudication became a natural progression from her work as a Director which ranges from Greek Tragedy through most of Shakespeare’s plays to Harold Pinter, Samuel Beckett the Comedies of Alan Bennett, and Alan Ayckbourn as well as the work of contemporary writers such as Mark Ravenhill and April de Angelis.
Much of Jill's work has been the training of professional actors, having been Head of Acting at three London drama schools over the years, with numerous successful graduates seen regularly on television, film and in our major theatre companies. Jill has adjudicated at all levels of the All England Theatre Festival, including the English, Scottish and Irish finals, and is vice-chairman of the Guild of Drama Adjudicators. She is also an examiner for Trinity College travelling to Australia and the Far-East as well as throughout Britain & Europe.
