In her time outside of theatre, Caroline is an active member of her school’s speech & debate team and enjoys film, fashion, and hanging out with friends. She loves being a part of the drama club, as it gives her a place where she can express herself and make new friends. Let’s make this year one for the books!

During the winter one acts, Abigail performed as Juliet in When Shakespeare’s Ladies meet and Company in Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon.

Frances Baker – Publicity

Frances Baker is a senior at James River and is the Publicity Officer for TOTJ. As the Publicity officer she will do everything she can to publicize our team, our shows, fundraisers, and events.

After working and observing the MANY different roles that it takes to put a show on its feet she has found that Publicity is where she belongs.
