New Artists

Welcome to the Sankofa New Artists Page. We pride ourselves on the people we work with Below you’ll find information on new artists we’ve work with recently and a little information about them.

Jeannie Saracino, a North Carolina native, is about to begin her final year at The Theatre School at DePaul University. She will graduate with a BFA in Acting and a minor in Italian. This Is Our Youth will be her first performance on the Chicago stage. Recent Theatre School credits include The Ernie Play (directed by Shade Murray), The Lonely Soldier (directed by Tara Mallen) and The Skriker(directed by Jess Jung). This summer, she studied the Roy Hart voice technique in Malerargues, France and hopes to return there for more training next summer.

Michael Olavson grew up in Santa Cruz, California, and makes his post-college Chicago stage debut with This Is Our Youth. He recently  finished shooting the DePaul Bluelight feature, Sweet 16 directed by JoAnne Zielisnki.  He holds a B.F.A. from The Theatre School at DePaul University.  Big love and gratitude to my beautiful family.
