Program Director: Natasha Tunnicliffe
Natasha brings a love and passion for the development of people to her role as Program Director at Jesters Theater. Natasha attended Pacific Life Bible College where she studied Pastoral Leadership, specializing in youth ministry. She has worked in diverse ministry settings and strives to look at ministry in a new and fresh way while maintaining a strong biblical approach. Natasha enjoys writing and playing music and spending time with friends and family. She is very excited to have the opportunity to connect with families and young people this summer around art and faith!
Assistant Program Director: Alia Riesen aka Wasabi
Alia is so incredibly stoked to be working at Jesters again this summer. She has been with Jesters since 2011 and this will be her fourth summer working at Jesters’ summer programs. Alia could not be more excited about the camps this summer, and getting to see all the new and old faces. She loves the silliness and fun of being at camp and is super pumped for the Big Hero 6 acting camps and Lion King musical theatre camps.
Training Director: Riley Wiebe aka Mochi
Riley loves the community at Jesters Theatre, and is super duper excited to take on her new role as the Training Director! She is passionate about God and loves becoming a character on stage, so Jesters is a wonderful opportunity for her to express both. If you sneak up on Riley, you might catch her making up a pun, painting, hugging her cat, or getting really scared because you just snuck up on her. She has been in Jesters as a staff member, student leader and student since 2011. This spring, Riley graduated from Quest at Columbia Bible College, where she learned about God while developing her personality, making friends, and doing cool things like skiing and rock climbing. She is excited to bring what she has learned to Jesters this summer.
Student Staff: Amy Forsyth aka Nano
Amy is super excited to join the Jesters team this year! If her face seems familiar, you may have seen her around back in Seuss times or you might be remembering her sister, Ellie. They look quite similar, but they are indeed different people. Amy is a lover of history, the arts, people, and, rather fittingly, Disney. She has been singing “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” since she was a small child and dreams of doing a Big Hero 6 cosplay one day. As you could imagine, she is stoked by the themes at Jesters this summer! Even more so, she is stoked to encourage and build up young thespians and leaders so they can shine using their God-given talents.
Student Staff: Kendra Espezel aka Honey Lemon
Kendra is a secondary student who loves helping kids find their passion and sharing how God works in everything to everyone around her. This is her first summer working for Jesters Theatre and she is really looking forward to a great time! There has always been something special in watching kids express themselves in acting and how God is working through them. Kendra loves spending as much time with kids as possible from playing with them, helping with school or teaching them dance moves. She is very grateful that she has been blessed with opportunities to learn different aspects of the arts and is keen to share her gifts with them. One of her aliases is Honey Lemon because she is fun, enthusiastic, loves taking pics and is super excited for this summer! She can’t wait to explore what this summer has in store for you all!
