Joy Campbell

Although Joy’s first featured role in a Gilbert and Sullivan performance, this is by no means her first G&S appearance! That was as a genuinely “18 and under” schoolgirl in The Mikado. She was then onstage in drama clubs in Glasgow, during and post-university. Over the years, fans could also have spotted her in the chorus of Inverness Opera Company and Rosyth Musical Society, until dragged into DGASS by a Savoy-obsessed husband in 2004! After a couple of extremely nervous small singing solos at summer concerts, Joy has decided to stick to what she knows in the non-singing role of Ruth.

Off-stage, Joy taught English in Secondary schools throughout Scotland for many years. Don’t call her retired, though – she now works with grown-ups, employed by Fife Council teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, some of whom enjoyed last year’s performance of The Yeomen of the Guard and are back for more!
