It is with great pleasure that we announce that Jennifer Schwartz will be joining the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies on December 3rd as the new Production Manager.
Jenn has been a professional in the WDC theater community since moving to the area in 2004. The first half of her career consisted of working as an AEA stage manager, with the majority of that time spent as the resident stage manager for Round House Theatre. After 5 years as the resident stage manager, Jenn transitioned into Production Management. She served as the Production Manager at Round House Theatre, and most recently, at Imagination Stage. In her time at Imagination Stage, Jenn was able to participate in many unique opportunities, including the successful planning and execution of an expansion into WDC that began with a partnership with The National Theater in 2014. Most memorable was producing and stage managing a tour of Inside Out as part of the 25th ASSITEJ - International Association of Theatre for Children and Young People Summer Festival in South Korea in 2017. Imagination Stage was the first American company to present at the festival, and Jenn was thrilled to be able to represent the American Theatre for the Very Young. Ultimately, Jenn became the General Manager & Production Manager of Imagination Stage where in addition to her Production Management duties, she became responsible for managing the finances and operations of the $6 million organization.
