Jaidyn Gieni

Level 8


My name is Jaidyn Gieni, a triple threat performer from the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada. I graduated from the Music Theatre Performance Program at St. Clair College in Ontario, Canada in 2022, and continued training internationally in Sligo, Ireland, obtaining my Bachelor Honours Degree in Performing Arts from ATU.

My biggest accomplishment this year was making my international debut as Tracy Turnblad in Hairspray, with Pop-Up Theatre Company in Sligo, selling out every performance. I was privileged to have several performance opportunities during my time at ATU, some credits include performing scenes from Irish plays and musical numbers in our scene show, Never Scene Before, and playing the title role of Emer in the Yeats Project, The Only Jealousy of Emer.

Creating a positive, accepting environment, sharing valuable stories, and forming meaningful connections, are what I strive to accomplish through theatre. My career ambitions and dedication to the work motivate me to take every opportunity available, to learn and gain experience. I am staying abroad in Ireland, while travelling to London to audition for West End, and aspire to perform in a variety of roles. I can’t wait to see what opportunities await!
