Wisener also was part of Musical Theatre 4 Youth, and appeared in a workshop production of Falling. In earlier days of her youth, Jayne worked in a local Pizzeria called Pizza Pomadoro's. While performing in a youth production of West Side Story at the Millennium Forum in Derry, Wisener was spotted by a talent scout, who asked her to audition for a role in Sweeney Todd. Wisener was, at age 19, deemed too old to play the 16-year-old Johanna; when told this, Wisener "e-mailed them some pictures of [herself] without make-up. Usually looking young does [an actor] no favours at all but [she was] quite pleased this time." Wisener made her stage debut in the UK premiere of the musical Parade at the Donmar Warehouse theatre in 2007. Read more on Last.fm.
