Amanda McDowall & Jacqueline Raymond Wegman
Executive Director, Jacqueline Raymond Wegman (MSEd City College of New York) and Artistic Director, Amanda McDowall (BFA SUNY Buffalo) are graduates of the University at Buffalo’s BFA Theatre Performance Program (2008 and 2009 respectably). Both have worked in New York City as professional actors and arts educators for over a decade and can be seen in television, film and in productions in NYC and abroad. Both specialize in urban education and devising theatre for non traditional communities.
In 2013, Jacqueline and Amanda’s shared passion for theatre and women’s rights led them to creating an all female production company which has transformed and grown into the dream that is International Girls Ensemble. Jacqueline and Amanda’s goal is girls and women having access and equity worldwide.
