Jackee Frome (formerly Jackee Bianchi) grew up in San Diego and began performing in musicals at an early age. As her career blossomed, she was accepted into the prestigious musical theatre program at the Coronado School of the Arts. At school she became passionate about Shakespeare, and was chosen as the overall winner of her school’s Shakespeare competition her senior year. She was also recognized as Best Lead Actress in a Musical at the National Youth Theatre Awards for her portrayal of Toffee in Zombie Prom. Once Jackee completed high school, she moved to Los Angeles and earned her BFA in musical theatre from the AMDA College and Conservatory of the Performing Arts. Upon graduation, she moved to New York City where she performed in a variety of musicals and television shows. After returning to Los Angeles, she was recognized with the Stage Scene LA “Scenie” Award for Best Lead Ensemble for her portrayal of Heather in American Idiot. She was also a featured recording artist with California Love Records (where she recorded many original songs), and also performed as a backup singer with the bands Ophelia Cache and Dirty Little Billy.
Because the love of theatre has helped shape the course of Jackee’s life in such a positive way, she decided she wanted to share that love of theatre with the next generation of kids through teaching. She is now a theatre teacher with the STAR Education afterschool program, where she directs and choreographs two short musicals every year at four different elementary schools in the Los Angeles area. In addition she is the choreographer for the afterschool theatre program at Community Magnet School, putting on one full-length musical every year.
