It is with great sorrow, The Company Theatre announces the death of our beloved co-founder, artistic director, producer, and friend, Jordie Saucerman, at the age of 66. She succumbed to cancer in her home on Thursday, July 2, 2020, surrounded by Sally Forrest, Zoe Bradford, and close friends.
Jordie’s passing is an incredible loss for not only The Company Theatre but also the South Shore and Greater Boston theater communities. Jordie was beloved by her peers, staff members, families, and most of all her students. Her incredible generosity, kind heart, sassiness, and sense of humor drew people to Jordie; and she welcomed them into the theatre family. Her love for her theatre and the realization that The Company Theatre was a safe haven of acceptance and a place that could form and change lives are her lasting legacy. Jordie played a critical role in developing the Company’s mission and bringing our motto of ‘we are a family’ to life both on and off stage. For that, we will be forever grateful.
Jordie will always be with us in spirit. She’ll be present in the stage lights shining from above, the glitter falling from the catwalk, the curtain that drops at the end of a performance, and, most importantly, in the hearts of the countless performers who enter The Company Theatre.
