Students participating in the annual school musical also come from a wide range of backgrounds, activities, and experiences. Athletes at JCS are able to participate in their sport as well as the school play, which is a wonderfully unique aspect of our school. The theatre group is well-respected among the student body at JCS and also within the community, where they frequently sell out shows at the Ned McWherter Center. The group has been invited to travel and perform at Disney World on two separate occasions.
Jenna Britt serves as director of our music theatre program. She comes from a background of voice, dance, and performance training and is happy to be working with her father, John Kimbrough, who directs and teaches JCS Chorus.
Mrs. Britt’s formal training is in the area of Psychology and Counseling, where she holds a Ph.D., and is a licensed professional counselor in the state of Tennessee. She is married to Bryan Britt, who has been coaching in various sports at Jackson Christian for several years. They have two children, Abby and Nathan, who are students at Jackson Christian.
