After acting in a local theater's production of "Into the Woods", Jennifer H was approached by the musical director about co-directing a musical the following year. She agreed and found herself at the helm of "The Mikado". The challenge was to bring a 130-year-old musical into 21st century without compromising the integrity of the original content. Jennifer had the opportunity to rewrite song lyrics to reflect 21st century plights, change dialogue to reflect local celebrity, and stage a production that was not only relevant but accessible to the general public. "The Mikado" was so well-received, she was invited back to direct a piece the following year.
