JANE DEANE actress | writer | director 
HELLO!and welcome to my web site. I’m Jane Deane, an actor type person who originally hails from Bolton in Lancashire. It was in Bolton that I began my theatrical journey as a member of the Bolton Octagon Youth Theatre at the tender age of 14. After training at St. Catherine’s Drama Studio in Guildford, I went on to work professionally all over the UK in pantomimes, theatre and TV. I ran away with  the circus for six months training with Zippo’s Circus Academy where I honed my skills as a clown, juggler and unicyclist, skills I continue to perform and  teach. My first love is the theatre and as well as performing, I have put my experience to use as a director. I completed directing and devising courses with the  Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Told By and Idiot and Spymonkey and have been responsible for the writing and directing of the Hotel  Entertainment Shows at Legoland Windsor Resort for both the 2014 and 2015 seasons. For those of you with young children, you may recognise me as ‘Dee Livery’ the unicycling paper girl who appeared alongside Justin Fletcher in the first 23  episodes of his BAFTA Award winning show “Justin’s House” on CBeebies. I believe it still gets repeated on the iPlayer!! In 2003 I founded “Avva Laff!” Productions in response to a request to write a new children’s comedy for Southwold Summer  Theatre. Through this company I have written, directed and produced 16 shows for Legoland Windsor Resort, developed a  number of specialist performance workshops, provided entertainers for a variety of events and PR companies and even  produced a TV pilot! The company will be making its Edinburgh Fringe debut in 2016 with brand new family comedy “The  Grimmest of Grimm Tales” I also present things and have hosted live events and shows for Qdos Entertainment, The Walt Disney Company, CBBC,  Guinness World Records and Legoland Windsor. I’ve even done a fair old bit of serious acting appearing in educational TV  drama for Highwood Productions and radio plays for BBC Radio 3.
