Jilleah ChannelsJo - Orchard Cast
Jilleah Channels (Jo) early roles include at Center Stage Studio: Jane Banks in Mary Poppins, Thénardier in Les Misérables, The Sultan in Aladdin, Rooster in Annie and Anastasia in Cinderella. She has had two years of training rotating roles as Roxie Hart in the musical Chicago and Ilse Neumann in Spring Awakening (Berkeley Repertory School of Theatre). She transferred to CSArts during the second semester of 8th grade and landed a role as Cherry Valance in The Outsiders (Duarte High School), and most recently played Carla in Route 66 (CSArts). She is immensely grateful for her family and friends supporting her decision to switch from the Musical Theatre Conservatory into the Acting Conservatory, and ever since she saw a production of Little Women at the Laguna Beach Playhouse, it has been a dream to be able to tell this story.
