Who We Are

Aaron (BW).jpg

Aaron Kamakawiwoole

Co-owner and Chairman of the Board

Aaron was one of the first capital investors in Jupiter Theater Company when it first launched in 2019. Alongside his wife, Elisabeth, and his kids, he loves assisting our growing community of actors, musicians, dancers, and singers as they pursue their passions through theater. He also loves hiking, strategy board games, and wargames, anything involving a sword or a power drill, and stretching his acting abilities in less formal ways through tabletop roleplay gaming. Over the years, he has served in minor crew and acting roles and now serves as Chairman of the Board for JTC, orchestrating fundraising efforts and providing accounting support for the company. If you have an interest in supporting the company in its fundraising efforts, you can reach Aaron at


Elisabeth Kamakawiwoole

Co-owner and Chief Operations Officer

Elisabeth has had the privilege of working with Jupiter Theater Company in nearly every capacity: actor, director, stage manager, producer, marketing director, house manager, and, most recently, co-owner! While she loves all things theater-related, her especial passion is putting on immersive experiences. Outside of theater, Elisabeth works as a legal assistant and enjoys writing, crocheting, and spending time with her husband and two children - who, with a total of 4 roles between them before the age of 3, are budding thespians themselves!

Jane White

Jane is pleased to be the Chief Executive Officer for Jupiter Theater Company. She has been with JTC since its first production in the summer of 2019.

Genna Pratt

Director of Education

Genna started acting at a young age and began teaching as an assistant for classes with Lighthouse Drama in 2015. She continued working with them as a lead teacher and assistant director until their closure in 2020. Genna has been an actor with JTC since its inception in 2019, performing in shows such as As You Like It, Hunchback, The Scarlet Pimpernel, and Twelfth Night. She has been a teacher with the company since 2021 and stepped into the role of Director of Education in Spring 2024. She has always loved working with children — she spent her teenage years babysitting and teaching children’s ministry at her church. Genna holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Liberty University and has worked at Harrison Street Academy since 2018. She is grateful to have her love of education and love of theater intersect in JTC’s Education Department. When she is not doing theater, Genna loves to spend time with her family, be outdoors, and drink coffee. 


Lydia Beard

Director of Marketing

Lydia is excited to be part of the Jupiter Theater team. She grew up in a house with two theatre-major parents and so was destined to fall into theatre herself. She grew up on Shakespeare and other classic playwrights. Lydia has been part of JTC since Hunchback and has been lucky enough to be part of nearly every JTC show since then in some capacity, including the health inspector in Our Hearts Were Young and Gay, the Ghost of Christmas Past in Fezziwig’s Ball, and assistant director for her own adaptation of The Scarlet Pimpernel in 2023. She started as the assistant marketing director during Our Hearts and is thrilled to now be the director of marketing. She currently works as a legal assistant in Purcellville and is studying to become a counselor. When not doing homework, Lydia can often be found with a book in her hand or playing RPG games with her housemates and friends.
