ARTISTIC TEAM/COMMITTEE


2017 EVENT CO-CHAIRS
Jordana Kujavsky & Benjamin Warner
 
 
 

Jordana's love for the stage has been life-long, first introduced by her multi-talented Bubby, a professional singer and dancer, and fostered through her own passion for theatre and performance. A lawyer by education, Jordana is now a professional in the marketing and social media world and runs her own lifestyle blog on the side. She is also proud to be serving her second year on the Executive for the Segal Centre's Young Leaders. Jordana is currently acting out her biggest role in life as Mommy to two beautiful little ones who keep her very very (very) busy. Thanks to her wonderfully supportive husband, Mitchell, she continues to perform in local community theatre productions. 

 
 
 

As a musical theatre performer and singer/songwriter, Benjamin has been on stage his entire life. He is a producer as well, which makes him incredibly happy and proud. He studied film and video production for six years during his post-high school education in Montreal and now pursues both filmmaking and performing as his full-time career. In his spare time he loves to exercise, play Dungeons & Dragons with his friends, and rid Gotham City of the criminal filth that infects its streets. (Don't tell anyone about that last part though, ok?)
