      For the last decade, Jessica Egli has worked in event production and management at The Englert Theatre. In her current position as Events Director, Jessica manages the Englert’s team of audio, lighting, and stagehand personnel, coordinates all rental event business, and handles logistics for both of the theater’s annual festivals, Witching Hour and Mission Creek Festival. She is also the creator of Acting Out! As an alumna of the University of Iowa’s Theatre Arts program whose focus was acting, Jessica knows well the power that the art of theatre has as a conduit for self-discovery and personal empowerment.
