"I'm Katherine Jackson (AKA Watson) and I founded Vital Spark Theatre 2005. I'm a Mother of two, Performer and teacher I have many qualifications and much experience in various areas of the arts. For example, I have a BA(hons) degree in Performing Arts, am an associate level qualified teacher with the Imperial Society of teachers of Dance, I have a Gold medal in acting from The London Academy of Dramatic Arts and have been a member of Equity for over a decade with many years professional touring experience. I love being outdoors, playing and telling stories.
