    Bio

    Jacqueline Wade is a graduate of Temple University's Theatre Department and Circle in the Square Two Year Actor's Training Program. She is a member of the professional acting unions, AEA and AFTRA-SAG.. She completed the Maysles Institute Filmmaker’s Collaborative ten-week course. She will receive her MFA in Documentary Film at City College of New York in May 2015.

    As an actress, Jacqueline has performed in plays at various regional theaters throughout the country, including Milwaukee Repertory (spell out complete name-avoid informality), Wilma Theatre, Williamstown Theatre Festival, LaMaMa ETC, Classical Theatre of Harlem, and many other theatres. She has also written 20 plays and directed over 35 plays and performance art pieces, which have been produced at and/or toured many theatres, performing arts centers, cultural arts centers, museums, colleges, prisons, schools, senior centers, and libraries throughout the country. Jacqueline’s mission is to bring theatre to the people. Some of the locations include New York International Fringe Festival, LaMaMa ETC., Henry Street Settlement, 40 Queens Libraries, African Meeting House Museum, Mary McLeod Bethune Council House Museum, Old South Meeting House Museum, Harlem School of the Arts, Nuyorican Poets Cafe, New York University, York College Performing Arts Center, Queens Theatre in the Park, Black Spectrum Theatre, Jamaica Arts Center, Sun Dog Productions, Riverbank State Park, Vinnette Carroll, Theatre, and many other locations. It has been Jacqueline's goal to present the side of history which is not often told. Her plays and performance art pieces deal with the alternative political and cultural perspectives from the past, present, and future. Movement theatre is a part of her work. Some of her plays include, Juneteenth, A Caribbean Christmas Carol, Phillis Wheatley: The African Muse, Black Panther Women, Women in Comedy, Madam C.J. Walker, The Three Sides of Anita Hill, Miles Davis, Tituba, Garvey's Wives, Zora’s Tales, Nat Turner, Rosa, Mae, and many more.

Jacqueline Wade was also awarded the Walt Disney Pride Rock Grant. She was also awarded the Ethel Surgent Grant for $15,000 which helped to fund the touring of her plays to over 30 culturally-deprived schools and institutions in Pennsylvania. She has also worked extensively with youth to motivate them to be positive, to have empowerment, to be creative, and (to recognize) that all doors and possibilities are open to them. She does this through workshops, art-in-education programs, and creative dramatics programs as a director, playwright, and acting teacher. Ms. Wade was also honored by Delta Zeta Chapter in Philadelphia for teaching cultural literacy through drama, and was recently awarded a writing residency at Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. Ms. Wade has directed and produced many plays and is co-founder of Through Her Eyes Women of Color Film Festival. She is also the founder and executive producer of the non-for-profit theatre, Women of Color Productions, Inc. which produces plays by or about women of color. The various plays are multi-cultural and deal with human rights issues. Jacqueline Wade’s most recent play, Mama Africa, which she directed and wrote was performed at the New York City theatre, The Kitchen.
