About me

Jeremy is a theater maker with a focus in design, direction, and project/program development. His background runs the gamut from theatre to dance and opera, classical to contemporary plays, and from community-based arts to theater for young audiences. Winchester has worked with such notable companies as the Santa Fe Opera, Spoleto Festival, Cornerstone Theatre, Pacific Performance Project, Peter Kyle Dance, and Boise Contemporary Theatre, among many others. He has also taught in the theatre departments at Michigan State University and the University of Evansville. From 2012 to 2016, Winchester served as the Executive Artistic Director of Flint Youth Theatre (FYT), a year-round professional theatre for youth and family audiences in Flint, MI, where he directed and designed both children's theatre mainstays and classic works from the larger theater canon for audiences of all ages. Winchester is also committed to creating new work, and dedicated one slot per year in FYT’s season to new-play production. During his tenure at FYT, the theatre joined Actors’ Equity Association and TYA/USA. Winchester holds a BFA from the University of Oklahoma, and an MFA from the University of Washington. He also serves on the Board of Directors for TYA/USA, an organization dedicated to providing advocacy and resources in order to strengthen and diversify the field of theatre for young audiences.
