Theatrical Director-Kimberly Jones
There is no doubt that I loved this shoot. Of course, it makes total sense. This beautiful and talented woman just happens to be my amazing wife. During the day, she is a very successful and very busy HR Manager. In her spare time, she transforms into a Theatrical Director Extraordinaire! Kim grew up participating in theatre. College bound, she headed off and attended both UCLA and UC Santa Cruz, where she obtained her Bachelors degree in theatre.
Her talents and credits are many. She has acted in shows such as Nightmare Before Christmas, Wizard of Oz, and Cinderella.
On the other side of the curtain she was Prop Master at UCSC and Props Artisan for Shakespeare Santa Cruz,
as well as Stage Managing for Beauty and the Beast with Broadway on Tour.
But her real passion shines through as a director. She has directed several musical performances such as Godspell, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Bye Bye Birdie with TheATree Productions, Breakfast Club at UCLA, and her most recent production was Next to Normal with DCMS Productions.
This is just a sample of her works and credits, but on top of all this, she has taught drama to elementary school kids and junior high kids in LA and Santa Cruz, and worked as a volunteer with Broadway on Tour in Santa Ana, CA.
If you ask, she will tell you the reason she loves theatre so much, is because she gets to create new worlds, dive into characters, push for perfection, and ultimately create an entertaining experience for the audience.
The entertainment world is definitely a much more beautiful place with Kim involved in it.
And so is mine!
