Jessica Autumn Zodrow

Artistic Director

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who was enchanted by the theatre. And when she grew up, she dreamed of starting her very own theatre company and school. She filled her life with storytelling and studied every type of theatre that she could. She traveled to far off places like New York City and San Francisco in order to expand her heart and mind. Blessed with the gifts of family and friends, over twenty years of experience in creating theatre, and a Masters in Theatre Education from NYU, Jessica Autumn Zodrow is finally able to bring her dream to life. She welcomes you to joy & wonder theatre, a place where anything is possible!


Lisa Gilham-Luginbill

Creative Partner

When she was growing up, Lisa wrote, directed, produced, marketed, and performed in a comedy sketch show called "Skits and Laughs." She was eight, it was in her friend's basement, and the audience was their three brothers, but she took it as seriously then as she does now. Lisa still loves being in charge of a show and she can't wait to bring her creative business mind to joy & wonder theatre.
