Actress | Writer | Stage Manager
Hello! My name is Jacqueline Joncas. I'm an actress, writer, and stage manager originally from rural Maine. As a child, I grew up working on farms and horseback riding in a competitive equestrian circuit; through this, I learned how to be focused, driven, and determined - which has translated over to my artistic life. As an actress, I strive to breathe life into each character. As a writer, I seek to expose the humanity inside every story. As a stage manager, I endeavor to support my troupe (cast, creative team, and crew) in every way I possibly can. I am currently a member of Irondale Ensemble Project, one of America's longest-standing permanent ensemble companies, located in Fort Greene, Brooklyn in NYC.
