Michelle Tydeman

Administrative Manager

Being introduced to ballet and the theatre at a young age encouraged Michelle’s admiration of the arts, despite having two left feet. Add in a love of people, diversity, and networking opportunities, with a work history that has seen a variety of roles including that of a program coordinator for a children’s center, working with Jesters Theatre was a natural fit.

However, it is including marginalized people and guiding them to realize their God-given value that makes her heart full .

Mother of three, short order cook to many and wife to her best friend, she is a self-proclaimed extroverted-introvert who loves comical surprises, Aha moments and seeing the world through the eyes of a child.
