Mijanne has been a part of Jamaican theatre since 1998. Working with the country’s premier directors and producers, she has been both cast and crew in most of the top productions emerging from the creative industry and Stage Manager for notable events such as JCDC’s Grand Gala, Mello Go Round and ITI’s Actor Boy Awards. Mijanne has toured with several productions and has done several stints in New York which includes “Alphabet City” put on by the Metropolitan Playhouse and “Welcome To America” by Braata Productions.
In 2006, while studying performance violin at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts School of Music and preparing for her ABRSM Grade 6 exam, Mijanne was called to go on tour with Jah Cure, Diana King and several other top musicians from Jamaica and spent the next ten years touring the world, playing reggae inspired fusion music.
An adept violinist, song writer and producer, Mijanne has written and produced several songs for several Jamaican artists. When she is not on tour playing violin for Diana King, she works as stage crew for productions in Florida, including the Christian Dior Fall Fashion Show and the Super Bowl as well a Violin instructor at Sam Ash.
