Artistic Director, Jen Tidwell

Ms. Tidwell won her way into the Youth Education Program at A Noise Within in Los Angeles and studied with world-class classical theatre artists for 3 years. She took those skills to win Best Supporting High School Actress at the Southeastern Theatre Conference 1997. In Las Vegas, Jen created Greenhouse Productions and produced shows in small (60 seats), medium (200 seats) and large (1100 seats) venues from Off-Off-Broadway scale all the way through full Broadway scale productions. She successfully bridged all challenges—artistic, production, planning, and management—and worked in cooperation with Nevada Theatre Company, College of Southern Nevada/Jade Productions, and Super Summer Theatre. Equally skilled in technical theatre, Jen stage-managed Hamlet in Park City, Utah, with members of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Jen is also a lighting and sound designer as well as a theatre entrepreneur; a true Renaissance Woman of the theatre.
