Meet the Cast of TWELFTH NIGHT - Tess Jenkins as Maria/Antonia

Hello Tess Jenkins! Thank you for taking the time to let our readers learn a little more about you! When was the first time you worked with Class 6 Theatre?

My first experience with Class 6 was to participate in the staged reading of Treasure Island in November 2013. After that, I was cast as Metellus Cimber/Titinius/3rd Plebeian in Julius Caesar and participated in the staged readings of Animal Farm and The Worst Play Contest, all in 2014.

Yes! Great job by the way! Are you excited for this show too?

I love Shakespeare and have a goal to perform in each one of his plays before I die. Twelfth Night is #6. 

Very cool! In addition to Shakespeare, do you have another hero or role model?

One of my biggest role models for acting is Tom Hiddleston. He can pretty much do it all. I watched a video on how he prepared for his performance in Coriolanus, and I was awestruck. Now THERE'S an actor! Plus, he's Loki.

If you had to pick another Shakespeare character that you most relate to, who would you pick?

I was always able to relate best to Beatrice from Much Ado About Nothing, and to play that character is #1 on my bucket list. She's strong-willed, feisty, independent, and won't settle for less than what she wants or thinks is right. After taking the Shakespeare character quiz, guess who I got? Beatrice. Boom.

Excellent! Thanks again for your time; we can't wait to see your performance this Fall in Class 6 Theatre's Twelfth Night!

And why not take the Shakespeare quiz yourself? Make sure to SHARE your result and mention #Class6Theatre and #TwelfthNight!

Tess is thrilled to be back on the Class 6 stage, having appeared in last year’s Julius Caesar, as well as staged readings of Treasure Island, Animal Farm, and The Worst Play Contest. Other valley stage credits include A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Crucible, Alice in Wonderland (Zoni nomination), The Picture of Dorian Gray, and Much Ado About Nothing, to only name a few, as well as last year’s film adaptation of Two Gentlemen of Verona, currently in post production. Tess wishes to thank Keath Hall and Eric Schoen for this opportunity, and the cast and crew. For you, Dad.
