Jessica is a wonderful addition to the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center. She has strong networking and project management skills to simultaneously drive multiple projects and events. She has a graduate degree in Community Leadership specializing in non-profit management and development. Jessica was the Manager of the 2015 PAFAC Shakespeare in the Woods production of “A Midsummer’s Night Dream," and was continuing in that position in 2016 for “The Tempest”.
Lindsay is the newest addition to PAFAC as the Administrative Coordinator. She is an artist, creating and selling her own pieces that are inspired by nature and fine detail. She moved to the Olympic Peninsula from Southeast Alaska, with prior experience working in Alaska’s top rated art gallery. Lindsay has attended Academy of Art University, studying Interior Architecture and Design. She is looking forward to connecting with local artists and businesses, and to be a part of the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center team!
Cheryl Dawn Koenig
Shakespeare in the Woods Director
Cheryl Dawn Koenig was born in Port Angeles, but was raised in Los Angeles in a Motion Picture family. She has been dancing since she was 3 years old and performing since she was 8. She studied dance, music and theatre in college and has always been active in the performing arts participating as a performer, choreographer or director in nearly 100 productions through the years. She has also worked as a dance instructor for colleges, performing arts schools and ballet companies. Cheryl was recently seen in the Port Angeles Community Players productions of "Five Tellers Dancing in the Rain" and "Making God Laugh". While at WWU she played the part of Rosalind/Ganymede in the 1980 Summer Stock (and fall reprisal) production of "As You Like It" and has always considered it a favorite, so she is thrilled to have the opportunity to direct this show for PAFAC Shakespeare in the Woods.
Shakespeare in the Woods Artistic Director
Anna is a transplant from California where she worked extensively as an actor and director. Since moving to Port Angeles she has kept busy. In addition to co-founding Shakespeare in the Woods, Anna has worked extensively with the local community theaters, and directs developmentally disabled adults for Clallam Mosaic. This season, Anna is taking a break from directing to focus on her role as Artistic Director, and will also be making her PAFAC acting debut in the role of Audrey.
