“One of the great things about Women in Jeopardy is its zany, relatable content,” said Kelly Criss, director. “At its foundation, it’s a story of three divorcées whose lives get turned upside-down when one of them finds companionship, albeit with an extremely eccentric dentist, which sets off a chain of events that result in hysterical antics. When watching the show, you can’t help but envision a neighbor, colleague or even family member who would do something crazy like Mary and Jo, which brings even more hilarity to the production, if that’s even possible.”
Under the direction of Criss, Women in Jeopardy! is brought to life by the innovative design team of Isabel and Moriah Curley-Clay (Set and Costumes), Sarah Thomson (Scenic Artist), Mary Parker (Lights), Ryan Bradburn (Props) and Thom Jenkins (Sound). The cast is led by top regional actors Andrew Benator (Jackson/Sgt. Kirk Sponsullar), Kerrie Seymour (Mary), Katie Kneeland (Jo), Lala Cochran (Liz), Caroline Arapoglou (Amanda) and Justin Walker (Trenner).
