Richard III is open and selling out most every night in Ellicott City. I'm so pleased to be performing with Chesapeake Shakespeare and hope you'll come out to see this amazing traveling Shakespeare production!

My fitness classes are taking me all over the DC Metro area and I've launched a Facebook page to get you involved! 'Like" Piloxing with Jennifer' and come be introduced to the magic of Piloxing®.

As to the rest of the year; I can't wait to get married on December 15th. Then it'll be back to the audition season come January!


Kathleen Akerley's Goldfish Thinking is now open! So proud to be premiering with Longacre Lea. Come in for a dreamy experiment in truth that's sure to make you question your reality. Production photos coming soon!

I'm so pleased to announce that Cabaret with Festival 56 was a huge success.
Audiences and critics raved and I'm honored to share with you the following review!

Also keep an eye on this site for a video reel of my hit choreography!


Rehearsals are underway for Longacre Lea's upcoming Goldfish Thinking. Jennifer is beyond excited to be a part of another Kathleen Akerley production. See the link to our flyer and look for more information in August!

This month marks Jennifer's journey to Princeton, Illinois where she will be choreographing Cabaret for Festival 56. Look for photos and video to be uploaded soon!

Jennifer is also thrilled to announce that she has been cast in Chesapeake Shakespeare Company's fall production of Richard III. The setting will be in their historic outdoor space in Ellicott City and will open this October. Honored to make her debut with this company, Jennifer looks forward to being a member of this talented ensemble!

This month Jennifer was also honored to be recognized by the Washington Post Express for her work as a Piloxing® fitness instructor. READ the article and feel free to drop into a class at either Joy of Motion or the YWCA! Class times listed in article.


The show is open and the first 2 weeks of Sam Shepard's Tooth of Crime have been nothing short of rockin. Come hear the band at the Artisphere in Rosslyn, VA and see what the critics are raving about! For more info, click HERE!

Jennifer is pleased to announce that in addition to Tooth of Crime, which opens May 21st, she will also be choreographing a production of Cabaret for Festival 56 in Princeton, IL this summer! Immediately following she will return to DC to act once again with Director Kathleen Akerley in an original production, Goldfish Thinking. The work is booked through mid-September and couldn't be more excited!


Last month proved to be a busy and exciting return to the auditioning world after months away at work! With auditions for Virginia, Pennsylvania and Georgia Shakespeare Festivals, an evening in front of Musical Theater Agents in New York, both Stages and The Muny in St Louis, as well as EPAs all over the east coast I am working hard and eager to see where the year may take me. This year I made my first trip to UPTAs and was honored to be called back by so many distinguished companies. My thanks to all who are supporting me and keeping me in their casting pool!

Over the last month I was also privileged to work with the delightful director Laura Reyes on her first full-length film, Yo, Meche. Filming this incredible piece of writing was a joy and I'm thrilled to see the final result soon!

Additionally, Tis the season for EPAs and I'm determined to hit as many as possible. Already in callbacks with some theaters, look for more updates soon on where the 2012-2013 takes me:)

I am also now a certified group fitness instructor with AFAA! Having danced my whole life, I have always been keenly aware of how important movement and exercise is, especially to us as performers. I am so excited to be an official part of the fitness community and will keep you posted on where I'll be teaching next.

Next stop? Rehearsals begin on April 2nd for Sam Shepard's Tooth of Crime. Could not be looking forward to it more and keep your eyes peeled for news of our run at WSC's Avant Bard!
