JULIENNE JONES (Delilah)

Julienne Jones first discovered pushing boundaries and questioning norms when in Catholic pre-school she convinced everyone to pee in the sandbox for "political reasons." After learning what this term actually meant, Julienne channeled her passion for change into art. Since the sandbox incident, Julienne's favorite credits have included Honey in Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf (James Madison University), Bobrauschenbergamerica (James Madison University), The Abominable Blogologues (Under St. Mark's Theatre), as well as various film and web productions. But her most rewarding and fulfilling project to date was her recent production of Stage Pell-Mell: The Grey Matter of Wandering Minds and the Plight of Lost Souls {or} Mumbo Jumbo: A Show in Dumbo. Julienne not only produced this spectacle of music, words, and dance, but also wrote a handful of pieces in the show.
