Since 1990, Helen has worked prolifically as an actor and singer in theatre, TV, radio, cabaret and in concert.  She is also a professional playwright and composer and works regularly with Big Finish Productions as a voice artist, scriptwriter, director and producer.   Her published audio dramas include episodes of DOCTOR WHO, TORCHWOOD and THE TOMORROW PEOPLE.  Most recently she has produced and co-written the original audio drama series, ATA GIRL.

As a performer, Helen has been fortunate enough to work all over the world and with directors including Judi Dench, Simon Callow, Kenneth Branagh and David Jason.  Theatre productions include MY FAIR LADY, ROMEO AND JULIET, UNCLE VANYA, ABIGAIL’S PARTY, ME AND MY GIRL, THE TAMING OF THE SHREW, MACBETH, HELLO DOLLY and JUST SO.  She has appeared in numerous rep seasons including Regents Park Open Air Theatre, Chichester Festival Theatre, York Theatre Royal, Oldham Coliseum and has played lead roles in over 70 audio dramas including ‘Christine Daae’ in THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA on BBC Radio, the lead role of ‘Elena’ in the long-running audio series of THE TOMORROW PEOPLE and, most recently, in the regular role of ‘The Village Voice’ in the audio series of THE PRISONER, based on the 1970s TV show.   

In between theatre work, Helen has appeared in innumerable concerts and cabarets. She was a regular lead singer with THE PICCADILLY DANCE ORCHESTRA at The Savoy and other London Venues and in 2007 was one of the final seven women in BBC Radio 2’s International ‘Voice of Musical Theatre’ Competition.

Helen started writing her own comic songs in 2010, initially performing them as a one-woman show then evolving the show into a musical comedy trio called LADIES GO-DIVA, which swiftly became established on the cabaret scene, touring the UK and appearing at some of London’s premier cabaret venues, including The Pheasantry, Crazy Coqs and CafĂ© de Paris where they performed at the London Cabaret Awards. 

Helen’s songs are regularly performed by other cabaret artists and have also been featured on BBC 2, BBC Radio and in a series of concerts with the National Orchestra of Wales.
