Into the Woods at the
Scranton Shakespeare Festival
Bimba in Under The Overture at
the West End Theatre in New York City
directed by Gerard Alessandrini
Whether it be a world-premiere play, performing with a world-class orchestra, or on a Netflix set, Johna has found a home in the performing world with three national/international tours under her belt including the national tour of Jekyll & Hyde and Disney on Classic with The Orchestra Japan.
She has studied with Matt Farnsworth, Virginia Grasso, Joanna Glushak, Raye Birk (The Guthrie Theater’s Actor’s Workout), and Rich Remidios (Meisner technique).
Johna recently portrayed Cinderella in Into the Woods at the Scranton Shakespeare Festival, and has performed in NYC at Irish Repertory Theatre in The Butcher Boy and at The West End Theatre in Under the Overture directed by Gerard Alessandrini. She also was a swing/standby for Ricardo Khan's play Freedom Rider at the Tony-Award winning Crossroads Theatre Company and was Jane in and industry reading of Pride & Prejudice - The Musical.
In her free time, Johna loves playing piano, water-skiing (she's a former member of a water-ski show team), and being a dog mom to Sousa (named after John Phillip Sousa: band nerd alert!).
