"...there are immensely winning turns by Billy’s addled but loving Grandma [...] whose young double is beautifully danced by Jenny McPherson” – Chicago Sun-Times

Originally from Boulder, Colorado, Jenny has been working professionally as a performer since the age of nine. Now based out of Chicago, her credits include Drury Lane Theatre, Porchlight Music Theatre, and Kokandy Productions. Regionally, she has been seen in several Indiana Festival Theatre productions, as well as a season onboard the Showboat Branson Belle.


She served as Varsity Co-Choreographer alongside Graham Hawley for Indiana University's Grammy-nominated Singing Hoosiers. She has also served as dance captain on several productions.


Jenny holds a BA in Theatre & Drama with a minor in Music from Indiana University, where she graduated with High Distinction.

When offstage, Jenny enjoys yoga, playing The Sims and Stardew Valley, and snuggling her dog, June. In addition, she runs a calligraphy & lettering business called Little Jems Lettering. She hand-letters custom cards, framed art, and more.
