Jacquelyn O’Brien

Artistic/Managing Director

Jacquelyn O’Brien has been drawn to the stage as long as she can remember. She has been in shows since Elementary School, and in High School competed regularly in state and national Oral Interpretation competitions. Inexplicably she did not major in theatre in college, but rather holds a BA in Law, Philosophy, and Rhetoric and a Masters in Business Administration from Stephens College. As an adult she worked with a number of theatre companies in Columbia, MO both on and off the stage. Some of her favorite roles include Catherine in In the Next Room, Florence in The Odd Couple (female version), Ariel in The Tempest, and Sister Leo in Nunsensations and Nunsense 2.

When she moved to the mountains of Colorado she loved her new mountain life, but missed having a local theatre company to work with. Her best friend Angela also missed having a nearby theatre, and thus came the desire to create Peak to Peak Players. Thankfully, they found some other wonderful people to play along. She now runs Peak top Peak Players full time. Aside from building a theatre company, her hobbies include skiing, snowboarding, hiking with her two dogs, reading, and going to the theater.
