Jordyn has been working in the business of show for 15 years, and he has been at the Playhouse since 2019.

Since then, he has been fortunate to perform all over the world including right here at the Playhouse. He initially came in as an out of town contracted performer in 2018 for The Rocky Horror Show. All of his luggage was already here, so he decided to stay. His passion for the arts, wigs, sequins, rhinestones, glitter…. basically everything and anything that sparkles led him to his current position.

He is humbled and grateful to be onboard with such an amazing collection of uniquely talented and creative artists here at the playhouse.
