Jayda Jones (Assistant Director)

Jayda is a Theatre Directing major, making her Fordham debut as the assistant director of B.R.E.A.D. Prior to her career as a director, Jayda acted and played characters such as Ariel Moore in Footloose and Daniela in In the Heights. Jayda hopes to pave a way for young black women to have both a strong voice and extensive representation in the theatre, and to make art that inspires positive change. She would like to thank Lee Melillo for giving her the amazing opportunity to work on such a powerful show and Fordham Theatre as a whole for giving her an outlet to express her creativity.
