Joelle Wyminga

Joelle is a multidisciplinary theatre artist working in Vancouver primarily as a director, actor, producer, and educator. She graduated with her BFA in Acting from Trinity Western University and is one of the founders of Far From the Tree Productions, an indie theatre company founded on telling honest and intimate theatre that explores the complexity of human relationships, particularly those bonds within family whether defined by blood, choice, or circumstance, and the expression of theatre magic. Joelle is a lover of history, Dungeons and Dragons, and comfortable shoes. She has had a passion for theatre since she was a wee girl growing up in the middle of the woods in northern BC and is so excited to be able to inspire and uplift her students along with the rest of the staff at Arts Umbrella.
