Elyse Jasensky

having last appeared here at TheatreWorks as Penelope Pennywise, keeper of the “amenity”, in Urinetown, Elyse is so happy to be “flushed down the pipes once again” on “this side of the tracks”! Elyse was last seen in a repeat performance of Miss Pennywise at The Wilton Playshop. Other favorite performances include Jacques Brel... and Puttin’ It Together (both at The Brookfield Theater for the Arts) and Company (Ridgefield Theater Barn). Elyse is now gearing up for her 13th season as producer, director, and writer of Fairy Tale Theatre where she also appears as Mother Goose in each performance. Elyse can also occasionally be found clowning around as her alter ego, Zip, the clown. Offstage, Elyse’s roles include second/third grade teacher, mother to three great kids, and wife to Frank. And now, without further ado, let’s “make like a nail and press on”!
