    This is Jenn’s eighth production with R-ACT.  She is thrilled to be portraying Lizzie Curry, a role she’s wanted to play since her high school theater director mentioned The Rainmaker to her over 20 years ago.  Jenn was most recently seen as Ginger selling candy cigarettes to patrons during Martinis and Murder.  Her past R-ACT roles include Bluebeard and Gretel in Fractured Fairytales Vol 2, Bella Manningham in Gaslight, Roz Hay in Moon Over Buffalo, Melody Brewster in Magnolias and Murder, Goldi Lox in Fractured Fairytales Vol 1, Elaine Harper in Arsenic and Old Lace, and Lorinda Hamilton in Death and Doubloons.  Outside of R-ACT you may have seen Jenn as Sheila in the Bobcat Players’ production of Foolish Fish Girls, or Mary Pringle in the Little Beaver Historical Society's production of Soldier Come Home at Lincoln Park. Jenn is a mother of two, a Psychology major at CCBC, a yoga instructor, and a mental health advocate.
