Ryan is a husband, a father, and comes from a background in professional acting and youth leadership. He is thrilled to head up the Jesters team, where he gets to combine these two big passions in his life. Ryan holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Performing Arts and also completed the apprenticeship program at Pacific Theatre in Vancouver. He loves helping youth see their own inherent value, and believes the performing arts is one of the best tools in which to do that. He believes no one is alive by mistake, and fostering the creative sense inside of yourself will help anyone value what they can uniquely offer the world. Ryan is also an avid board gamer and enjoys throwing down the gauntlet to all would-be challengers.

Ryan is Jesters Theatres’ Artistic Director.
He is teaching Improv this Spring.

Michelle is a mother of three and one daughter-in-law, and wife to her best friend Pat. She is a self-proclaimed extroverted-introvert who loves comical surprises, Aha moments and seeing the world through the eyes of a child. Despite having two left feet herself, she grew up loving the ballet and theatre scene and is at Jesters because of the inclusiveness that it promotes regardless of ability. She enjoys sharing God-stories with young people and watching them grow by helping create opportunities for them to understand how specially they have been created. Occasionally, she engages in her geo-caching pastime but Muggles beware as she’ll disappear before you can witness her discovery!

Michelle is Jesters’ administrator.
