Voluntary Arts Network Reporter

Joanne Koffman

jk

Joanne joined PADOS (Prestwich Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society) in 1999. 

She enjoys the challenge of being on stage. In particular remembering lines, choreography and being with like-minded people. 

Her passion extends to photography and capturing an action, a moment which turns into a memory that can be seen by others at a later date.
