Jane Flieller holds a BFA from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, moving to Milwaukee shortly after graduation to pursue a career in theatre. As a stage manager, Jane worked for many local companies, including Theatre Tesseract, Next Generation Theatre (and Next Act Theatre, which combined the two former organizations), Milwaukee Chamber Theatre, Theatre X, First Stage, and Skylight Music Theatre. She created the position of stage manager for ComedySportz, which she held for three years.
In 1998, Jane co-founded In Tandem Theatre with her husband, Artistic Director Chris Flieller. Their commitment to producing an eclectic season of comedy, drama, musicals, classics and new works was teamed with a desire to bridge the gap from emerging artists to seasoned professionals. In addition to her duties as managing director for In Tandem Theatre, Jane has directed plays and musicals for Carroll University, Marquette University, South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center, Irish Fest, and Broadway Baby Dinner Theatre, in addition to numerous shows for In Tandem. Among her favorites are “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown,” “Carnival,” “Apartment 3A,” “A Cudahy Caroler Christmas,” and “Ernest In Love.” Jane is a proud recipient of the Milwaukee Arts Board Artist of the Year award.
