WAYJO is delighted to welcome Emily Stokoe back to the office team as the new Events and Programs Manager.

Emily Stokoe is WAYJO’s new Events and Programs Manager.

Having previously served as WAYJO’s Event and Logistics Manager in 2021/2022, Emily spent last year as Company Stage Manager and Associate Producer for Barking Gecko Theatre. The executive team are therefore thrilled to announce her return in a new capacity as WAYJO’s Events and Programs Manager.

Emily brings a diverse range of experience to the role and expertise in the Perth arts scene. With a foundation in Stage Management training from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) and a proficiency in Producing and Design from the WA Screen Academy, Emily’s 14-year career weaves across various domains, including theatre, dance, festivals, local government events, site-specific activations, and extensive touring.

Despite her numerous freelance engagements, it was Emily’s love of WAYJO’s band members and staff, the privilege of regularly listening to live big band music, and her passion for creating opportunities and safe spaces for young people, that has drawn her back to the team.

Emily recently worked tirelessly on the team to put together the 2024 WAYJO band camp (clocking up more than 20,000 steps in one day!) and is looking forward to welcoming audiences to WAYJO’s concert programming soon.

If you’d like to get in contact with Em, you can send her an email, or phone the office on 08 9471 1950, where she’ll be working three days a week.
