A Passionate Dramaturg & 
Theater Maker


Jennifer Chaney was born to be a dramaturg and theatre maker. There is nothing more that she enjoys than being part of telling an important story. In 2021, Jennifer completed her BA in Theatre Arts and English at the University of Oregon. She currently studies at the University of Idaho as an M.F.A. candidate with an emphasis in playwriting. Whether it is in the director's seat, behind the scenes designing costumes, or writing a script that sparks, Jennifer enjoys turning her passion towards the stage.  She is always looking for her next project or collaboration, so if you have an idea and would like to work with Jennifer, please get in touch.
