Janice (right) and board member Sheila Butler, at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater
Janice’s contributions to the Bloomington theatre community are truly immeasurable. She has served as director, set designer, and publicity manager — often at the same time! And of course, no recognition of Janice’s work would be complete without acknowledging the incredible craft and dedication that went into the countless costumes she has created for MCCT over the years.
Janice spent a number of years in Japan with her sister, Sarah, spending time studying the Japanese kyogen tradition, as well as directing the very first production of Pirates of Penzance in Korea!
And we can’t forget — Janice directed MCCT’s very first production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, launching the Shakespeare in the Park tradition that celebrates its 25th anniversary this year!
Congratulations, Janice — it is well-deserved!
