Jessica Ervin is originally from Northern Kentucky, and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Ball State University with her B.F.A. in Acting. While in school, she spent several years studying Devising, Suzuki, Shakespeare, Grotowski, Slow Tempo, Lecoq, and Contemporary Drama. In those years, her passion for theatre and film took her from Maine to Western Nebraska for workshops and student films. She moved to Chicago less than a month after graduating, and has been involved in the community ever since. She started out by working with Walkabout Theater Company on their Summer in the Parks production of The Wild and has continued to work with companies such as Rivendell Theatre Ensemble, The Public House, Collaboraction, and Blue Goose Theatre Ensemble. Most recently, she was seen as Ester in Rivendell Theatre Ensemble’s production of Dry Land. Jessica can’t wait to continue working in a city she loves under the guidance of the incredible Gray Talent Group.
