Jane Staab

is delighted to return to the WFT stage, her home for 33 years. A founder of Wheelock Family Theatre, Jane has directed over 30 productions, including Annie, Honk, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon and most recently, Beauty and the Beast. She performed in well over 75 plays which included Emily Dickinson in The Belle of Amherst, Elizabeth Proctor in The Crucible, Jean Brodie in To A Mouse, A Mole and A Troll, among many wonderful roles at Wheelock. She wrote the music for several original productions at WFT including The Norton Award winning The Secret Garden. After retiring as a teacher at Wheelock College and WFT staff member, she moved back to her theatre roots at the Cape Cod Theatre Company/Harwich Jr. Theatre where she’s been fortunate to continue acting, directing and teaching. Jane was seen on Broadway with Frank Langella in The Prince of Homburg, worked off-Broadway and at several regional theatres, but considers her work at WFT and HJT, helping young performers grow and thrive, to be the most rewarding of all possible careers.
