Clue: On Stage - Mrs. Peacock

Strange Bedfellows - Janet Jenkins

This is Janet's forth time on stage at Theatre in the Heights. She is excited to be performing as Janet Jenkins in the premier production of Strange Bedfellows, by Bill Rowland. She thanks Bill Rowland and Blake Flores for casting her in this fun role. She would also like to thank the terrific cast for all their hard work. They have been GREAT to work with!

Her previous performances at Theatre in the Heights include Mrs. Peacock in Clue on Stage in 2022, Martha Gillette in The Game's Afoot, (or Holmes for the Holidays) in 2017, and in 2019 she received the theater's Best Actress award for her role as Fonsia Dorsey in The Gin Game.

Since moving to the Sacramento area in 2003, she also performed at The Crocker Museum for Performing Arts in The Flood, one of The Vagina Monologs and was in a Sutter Street Theatre production of You Can't Take It With You, as The Grand Duchess Olga Katrina. She began acting when living on the Mendocino Coast from 1974 to 1984 where she had roles in Beggars' Opera, Bye Bye Birdie, The Mad Woman of Chaillot and a local production of a clown circus. In 1984, she moved to Santa Rosa where she had a role in Animal Crackers, The Music Man and A Christmas Carol.

She is most grateful to her wonderful husband, Gary Kiddie, who spent many long hours helping her memorize her lines, and for putting up with her as she developed her character as Janet Jenkins, and for his patience as she spent so many hours away from home during rehearsals and performances.

This is a really fun show, and we all hope you enjoy our efforts in bringing it to you.
