Co-Artistic & Managing Director
Jennica has been as an actor, producer, and director with TYA companies across the country and spent four years as an Artistic Associate at Persephone Theatre before taking over CTYP. She studied at both the University of Winnipeg, where she graduated with Honours in performance, and the Studio 58 Acting conservatory in Vancouver, where she currently teaches acting. Since her graduation in 2012, Jennica has toured extensively with Green Thumb Theatre, Quest Theatre (Calgary), and as a solo performer in her pieces This Time I Get What I Want and An Inheritance, which was published in 2013 and featured in the Sarasvati Transformative 2014 Winnipeg FemFest. A recent career highlight includes directing Jabber, For Arts Sake, and It’s A Wonderful LIfe: The Radio Play for Persephone, and Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls for Carousel, for which she won the Jessie Richardson Award for Outstanding Direction. This season she will direct Oz, a co-production with Victoria’s Kaleidoscope Theatre for Young People. Jennica is ecstatic to bring her passion for creating magical experiences for young people through the power of theatre to CTYP.
