Sheril Turner | skirt! Greenville
When they moved to the Upstate and realized there was no vocal arts organizations, Jenna and her fiancé Christian decided to start one of their own. “We’re so happy to be producing our inaugural season of Greenville Light Opera Works (GLOW) at Centre Stage Theatre. I love directing operetta because it combines beautiful classical singing with a whole lot of laughs, and unlike opera, nobody dies!”
Currently starring in her own production—she and Christian are tying the knot on October 3—Jenna is optimistic about their future. “Our goal is to make a positive impact in the arts community of South Carolina.” Find out more about GLOW and their Operetta outreach program for schoolchildren called GlowWorms at greenvilleopera.org.
