Jessica Durdock Moreno appointed Artistic Director of The Sherman Players

The Sherman Players are proud to welcome Jessica Durdock Moreno to the position of Artistic Director on the Sherman Players Board.

Her addition was confirmed at the Board’s last meeting earlier this month.

Steve Stott, President of the Sherman Players says, "Jessica is simply the right person at the right time for the Players. Her experience, skills and history, coupled with a strong belief in the benefit of the Arts in the community are such a good fit with our goals and vision. Her infectious enthusiasm is awesome! I'm so looking forward to charting our course with Jessica as we head towards our Centenary, starting with planning the 2024 Season." 

Born in New Milford, Connecticut, Jessica's education and career journey has taken her far afield - across the US from NYC to LA, and across the globe, including to the Edinburgh Fringe. Now she's made her way back home to our area and is very active as a playwright, producer, actor and administrator in many projects across the region. Jessica's day job sees her as part of the artistic team at New Haven's famous Long Wharf Theater - experience that she'll now be able to bring to our community theater operation.

A passionate advocate for inclusivity in theatre, Jessica is the founder of Pale Horse Craft, an award-winning neurodiversity and learning disability centered practice, performance, and production container.  Speaking on taking up her position, Jessica says "Nothing has ever brought me closer to the art, craft, work, and joy of theatermaking than what I’ve experienced in community theater.  The intention is pure and the impact is real: we come together, question together, create together, and share together.  I am beyond thrilled to come home to the Sherman Playhouse family again to root myself in two of my greatest passions: community and theater."
