Jennifer Belander in Shooting Clouds!

IMTA alum Jennifer Belander is starring in the play Shooting Clouds - Shattered Dreams / Wounded Pride. This play was written by Frank Bramwell and is playing at The Union Theatre in London's prestigious West End. The play is set in 1958 in Sluice Creek, Georgia- a small town with close-minded people. The play is about family problems including alcoholism, rivalries and ambition. Jennifer plays Mary, the mother who is very passive and accommodating. Reviewers have raved about her performance, saying, "Jennifer Belander gives a magnificent performance as Mary, the mother. She is the very model of a submissive “Stepford” wife – in doll like make up, always in a pinny, always making cookies, always keeping her smile in place. And yet one can sense the dissatisfaction and the underlying strength of character right from the beginning."

Jennifer competed at IMTA in 1990 and moved to Los Angeles shortly after. She currently lives in London where she has been in many plays. One of the best known plays she was in was the production of Steve Martin’s popular Picasso at the Lapin Agile where she played Einstein! She has appeared in both commercials and in film.
