ABOUT MOI

My life mission is to heal and inspire with my creative endeavors. I'm a Caribbean-American who grew up in Bronx, NY. My roots stem from St. Kitts and Nevis.

My love for the arts began at the H.S. of Performing Arts in NYC. I received a B.A. from Hofstra University. I also studied abroad in Spain and France and I'm fluent in both languages.

As an actor, I've performed in many theatre productions such as "Ah Ha Moments' Butterscotch and Fudge" (NAACP Award Nominated-Best Actress). I've written and performed three solo shows. My first show, "Batman and Robin in the Boogie Down" has been highly acclaimed and was nominated for a Drama Desk award, among others. I've produced theatre productions, including my own solo shows. On screen, I've appeared in ten films, over twenty guest star TV roles and over fifty national commercials.

Written and performed by Juliette Jeffers

Premiered in May of 2003 under the direction of Reggie Rock Bythewood in Los Angeles

ABOUT

"BATMAN and ROBIN in the BOOGIE DOWN" is a touching and quirky biographical tale of two siblings. The acclaimed play chronicles their life and loss, from their exuberant childhood games as Batman and Robin, to the sudden passing of the older brother at the age of 33. In ACT I we see that the sister has become ill after her brother's death. She tries a myriad of alternative treatments from acupuncture to biofeedback to get better but nothing works. So she decides to go home to connect with her brother's spirit. In ACT II the brother comes back in spirit form to answer some of his beloved sister's questions and to give her some peace and closure. Both siblings tell their stories from their points of view through heart-wrenching and heart-warming flashbacks. It is a poignant story of two lives eternally intertwined with a multitude of vibrant characters from their shared past in the Bronx ... and beyond.

THE RAVES

"Rare vitality and soul-searching honesty accompany this funny and touching testimonial to the power of sibling devotion. This is a deeply personal labor of love. It is essentially beyond criticism. Miss Jeffers gifts are undeniable."

"This show is an extraordinary occasion. It is one of the highlights of the Dallas theatrical season."
~ Dallas Morning News

"Jeffers seamlessly flows through these various emotions moving from one character to another in the blink of an eye."

Pan Gyul

The life of a Trinidadian steel pan player

PAN GYUL

Written and performed by Juliette Jeffers

Directed by Michael Phillip Edwards

An excerpt of the play premiered at the L.A. Women's Theatre Festival in March of 2015 at the Electric Lodge. It was also performed at the Ivy Substation in June.

ABOUT

"Pan Gyul" is inspired by the life of Carol Smith. She was born in Trinidad in 1952 during a time where females were not allowed to play the steel pan drum. Carol Smith had to sneak around to get lessons as a little girl. Her natural talent improved so much that she was asked to participate in Trinidad's Carnival as a teenager. Once word got out that she was playing, she lost friends and was presented with the ultimatum of being expelled from school if she didn't quit playing the steel pan. "Pan Gyul" explores how a squashed dream can change the course of one's life.

TEACHING ARTIST

I started teaching acting in 2009 when I co-founded "Three At Play" school of acting in NYC. Since then, I've gone on to teach at Queensborough Community college and New Design Middle School in Harlem. I've conducted various workshops throughout the country focusing on theatre, solo shows, acting for tv, film and commercials, as well as the ins and outs of show biz. I've also worked as a private coach. I co-directed a solo show, "A Little Sugar For The Heart," which won the One Festival award for Best Solo Show.

QUOTES FROM STUDENTS

"Juliette is an absolute treasure! When she was living in nyc she served as my acting coach, she directed me on a few projects and she was my go-to gal for all things creative. She has a great way of helping other artists grow and expand their personal writing projects. If you are new to writing or if you are just looking to polish up a piece of writing material-look no further and work with this woman! She is truly a gem that will help sprinkle some magic into your work."
~ Christine Suero ("A little Sugar For The Heart" - 2011 One Festival Winner)

"At some point between going to Juliette's solo workshop and going home, I unleashed a broken heart. For the first time ever, I was inspired to write a solo piece that was literally gutted from the depths of my soul. "If there was a TV show onyour life what would the title be?" Juliette asked us in her class. "A Broken Heart Has Never Felt This Good", I blurted out. This became the title of my piece and the title nailed its content almost too perfectly. I came to Juliette's class expecting her to get up in the front of the room and just show us her stuff. Instead she showed me......ME...I Am Enough!"
~ Nehanda Louiseau

"Juliette is not only a marvelously gifted performer, she is also a generous and exceptional teacher, offering the expertise she has gained throughout her artistic journey as well as challenging her students to find their own path and voice. It is an honor and a joy to learn from her."
~ Heddy Lahmann

"Study with Juliette and you won't regret it. She cares about you and your work. Very unusual trait in teachers and she's got that."
~ Cynthia Scott (One Raelette's Journey)
