Jacqueline Brecker, Studio 3 instructor and alumni, is truly making a name for herself these days! Her work with multiple Valley theatres has grown tremendously this year. She has recently had an 8-month run of performances with the Hale Theatre, most recently in A Christmas Carol, Mary Poppins, Tarzan, Something’s Afoot, and leading roles in both Footloose (Ariel Moore) and Sound of Music (Liesl Von Trapp). She also gave breathtaking performances as Louisa in Carousel with Mesa Encore Theatre and as Betty Rizzo in Grease with Studio 3 last season. As a result of her hard work and dedication, the National Youth Arts awarded her with “Artist of the Year” for the 2014-2015 season. This is a prestigious title few are awarded, and we are proud of Jackie for her accomplishments!
Jackie began her training at Studio 3 in 2009 with our first production of Grease. She received much of her training through Showstoppers, where she continued to wow audiences with her outstanding stage presence, stellar vocal talent, and dance ability. Jackie has performed numerous roles in Studio 3 shows. Some of our favorites include: Millie Dismount (Thoroughly Modern Millie), The Chaperone (The Drowsy Chaperone), and Serena/Elle US (Legally Blonde).
