Welcome Jordyn Foss, Director of Performing Arts!

The Paramount is excited to welcome Jordyn Foss! Jordyn will be working hard to bring exciting shows and events to the Paramount Stage, as the new Performing Arts Director. Originally from Colorado, theatre has always been a big part of her life; from performing on stage, directing in both Colorado and Indiana for the past seven years, and receiving a Master’s in Theatre Pedagogy. We look forward to her creativity and enrichment, continuing the work to make the Paramount a staple of central MN!

Hailing from Northwestern Colorado, Jordyn Foss has joined the Paramount team as our new Director of Performing Arts. After completing her undergrad in Theatre & Speech Education at BYU-I, Jordyn has spent the last 7 years directing Theatre programs in K-12, both in Colorado and Indiana. Just this past year, Jordyn completed her Master’s in Theatre Pedagogy from Southeastern Oklahoma State University which is what ultimately led her to her role here at the Paramount. Having just bought her first house, she looks forward to making St. Cloud her new home and contributing to the growth and success of the Paramount Center for the Arts.

What is something you do during your free time?

Her love of music, film, theatre, and musical theatre has her spending her free time attending performances or performing herself. She most recently starred in the role of ‘Audrey’ in Little Shop of Horrors at her local theatre in CO. When she’s not at the Paramount finding acts for or performing on stage, she enjoys spending her free time with her husband and dog, playing board games, or exploring the local gems of her new hometown.

What do the arts bring to the community?

The arts contribute to any community by fostering creativity, cultural enrichment, and social cohesion. They provide a platform for expression and shared experiences, enhancing the overall well-being and identity of society.
