Jean-Louise England is thrilled to be joining the board of NEXT Ensemble. She is the Costume Studio Manager at Weber State University engineering costumes for Theatre and Dance. She has worked with companies such as Pioneer Theatre Company, Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre, Childsplay Theatre Company, Valley Youth Theatre, Arizona Theatre Company, and Tutu Etoile. She has designed or built costumes for dance, ballet, opera, theatre, music, cosplay, weddings, puppets, and family. She found her love of backstage theatre while playing in her high school pit orchestra and realizing that as much as she loves music, she was not good at playing it but she could sew very well. She has a great love of music and its ability to communicate stories in ways that words cannot. She has been a fan of NEXT Ensemble since it started and loves the unique programming it shares with our amazing community.
