Jenna Grubaugh

Founding Board Member

Jenna is an interdisciplinary theatre artist who has been working on and behind Vancouver stages for three decades. With a B.A. in Theatre and a minor in Peace, Justice, & Conflict Studies, Jenna's passions lie at the intersection of art and social justice. Most of her time now is taken up practicing non-violent conflict resolution with her three young kids, but she's also had the opportunity to work on a few meaningful projects in between: Still the Kettle Sings (Plan Z Theatre), Agnes of God (Stones Throw Productions), and filling the role of Community Liaison for Dark Glass Theatre's powerful production of Ruined. Jenna feels so grateful to be on the board of DTC with this team of powerful women, and is looking forward to many more opportunities to use theatre as a voice and vehicle for social change.
