Jan Broberg is the Executive Director of Center For the Arts at Kayenta.
Jan loves horses, people and doggies! Having rescued 11 dogs over her lifetime this is just one of her many passions along with all art forms, but performance is Jan’s true love. She continues to act in stage productions when she can find the time, as well as film, television and commercial projects. Most recently she was seen on the Hallmark Channel in two movies; “Check Inn to Christmas” and “Love Fall and Order.” She has worked with some of the greatest actors on the planet including Kevin Kline, Elijah Wood, Chris Pratt, and Betty White.
The Netflix Documentary “Abducted In Plain Sight” tells of the twisted and bizarre story of Jan’s childhood abductions, brainwashing and sexual abuse. She is an expert, advocate, activist and public speaker on the subject. A book of the same title will be out shortly and a possible television series is also on the horizon.
Jan worked with the Indian, Hispanic and Deaf communities in and around Guatemala City in her early 20’s as a missionary. A rare performance stint in India afforded her opportunities to meet Mother Teresa and spend time in her orphanages and home for the dying. “All were life altering experiences.” She graduated Magna cum Laude from Brigham Young University. She finds great joy in her son, Austen, Yorkie rescues Toby and Lucy and her mother MaryAnn.
Jan continues to be true to her mantra and message which is: “Let’s act-up, speak-out loud, sing-our own songs, and dance-free!”
Dean Jones Studied theatre and film at Brigham Young University in the early ‘90s and then became a behind-the-scenes multimedia producer in Los Angeles. In 2012, after spending a decade living in Cedar City, he rediscovered his passion for performing. He has been acting, directing, and producing for stage and screen almost constantly ever since. You may have seen him on our stage as Ladhalord in James & The Giant Peach, Pap in Hank Williams: Lost Highway, or Mark Rothko in Red.
Christopher Whiteside is Production Manager of Center For the Arts at Kayenta. He makes sure that everyone onstage and in the tech booth knows what they’re doing and that they’re efficient and safe while doing it. He also conceives of production ideals and helps execute as many as possible, whether that’s in acting, lighting, sound, building, or marketing.
Chris received a comprehensive theatre education from Tuacahn High School and Southern Utah University, where he earned a BFA in Theatre and studied theatre through the lenses of anthropology and psychology. Although his emphasis in classwork was in musical theatre performance, he was cast year after year in straight plays, sought for his commanding presence and deep understanding of a character’s inner life. He has been most acclaimed for the leading roles of Chad in “All Shook Up,” Lord Goring in “An Ideal Husband,” Stanley in “A Streetcar Named Desire,” Collins in “RENT,” and Hank in “Hank Williams: Lost Highway.”
Since 2014, he’s been a theater professional onstage and off, fueled (sometimes sleeplessly) by the elusive power of theatre—to make people what they were born to be. Kayenta Arts Foundation brought him on as an all-around assistant in May 2018. He is thrilled to have helped the Center grow into what it is today and is convinced that he works with the best people in town.
