West Michigan holds a plethora of artistic opportunities. TrueJEM Productions exists to immerse our community in a theatre culture that honors artists and audiences alike. Our mission, vision, and values are building blocks for our staff and volunteers to create an atmosphere in which every artist can grow. Only then, through hard work and true joy in our process, can we present a show that audiences will enjoy. Every person on our stage and behind the scenes comes to us from the West Michigan community our company calls home.
The team at TrueJEM Productions takes pride in the shows we present to the audience. We strive with each performance to learn our craft, maintain excellence, and improve the viewer's experience by continually encouraging professional level work.
The talent that comes through TrueJEM is a source of constant awe - not only to the audiences who are treated to rich character portrayals, but also to our production teams through the conduct and dedication in the rehearsal process.
TrueJEM, led by founder and resident director,
Jo-Ellen Ming, is operated under the understanding that theatre IS life enrichment. In the chaos of daily life, we are thrilled to offer a creative outlet in an inclusive and equal opportunity environment. We welcome onstage talent, stage crew, and other volunteers no matter the level of experience, age, race, religion, gender, economic status, or orientation. Our creations thrive due to the diversity of our company.
