Same Difference: A Disabilities Awareness Play -

Orphan Girl Children's Theatre

"The small 100-seat theater was nearly filled to capacity on opening night and patrons could be heard discussing the impact that this play had on them when it was last performed locally and how it remains relevant. Some of the Orphan Girl cast members in this show are alumni from the previous performances of "Same Difference."

Bring some tissue along to this donation-only performance. The honest perspective of how disabilities affect our citizens reminds and informs audiences of all ages of the importance of compassion, inclusiveness and respect."

                                    - Amber Smith, The Montana Standard, 2017

Elf Jr. The Musical - Orphan Girl Children's Theatre
"This musical, directed by the very talented Jackie Freeman, is such a joy for audience members of all ages." 
                                    - Autumn Mueller, The Montana Standard, 2016
The Little Mermaid  - Orphan Girl Children's Theatre

"Jackie Freeman’s debut as Artistic Director for the Orphan Girl Children’s Theatre is bound to be a delight for Butte audiences. She has masterfully brought together the talents of Butte’s youth alongside of an adult cast, which makes her production of "The Little Mermaid" brilliant. Her cast has worked tirelessly over the past few months and is prepared to give an incredible performance." 


                                     - Raylynn Connole, The Montana Standard, 2016

Steel Magnolias - Theatre Workshop of Nantucket


"Jackie Freeman as Annelle give a polished performance as well. Freeman is spot-on in the opening sceneas the mysterious newcomer to the beauty salon. She plays a shy, nervous and deperate young girl to perfection. The role calls for Freeman to change dramatically in each of the four acts and she does a fine job".


                                     - Barbara White, The Inquirer and Mirror, 2015

I Hate Hamlet - Ashtabula Arts Center

"Jackie Freeman, recently on stage in New Orleans and on her way to the Big Apple, is a local lady with stage presence that many actors would covet. Her experience during her 5-year absence from the AAC stage has certainly help to mold what seems to be a promising acting career.  Freeman’s female love

interest, Deidre, was convincing."


                                       -Roger Smith, The Star Beacon, 2012


The Clifton Monroe Chronicles - The Shadowbox Theatre

"Channeling a touch of Brigid O'Shaughnessy, Freeman works her duplicitous siren of doom through a nasel filter perfectly suited for radio and clearly has a hoot"


                                        - Jim Fitzmorris, NOLA Defender, 2012

Speech and Debate - Actors Theatre of New Orleans

"As Diwata, Jackie Freeman is a sheer delight. She is a fireball of energy, outcast by most around her but refusing to wallow in self-pity. Through her Internet blog, or painfully awful singing voice, she is the most defiant and brutally honest of the group."


                                               - Theodore P. Mahne, Times - Picayune, 2011

La Sirena - Allways Theatre

"...Jackie Freeman is a giant snark-machine as the tabloid reporter out to expose it all."


                                              - Jim Fitzmorris, NOLA Defender, 2011

Deepchurch Hollow - Venue 45, Edinburgh Festival Fringe

"Camille is a bitch, but Freeman inhabits her so well that you can't help almost admiring her."

                                          - Broadway Baby Review, 2010

The Margins - Venue 45, Edinburgh Festival Fringe"

"Jackie Freeman's physical acting is quite superb and adds an extra level to this production."

                                           - John Naples-Campbell, British Theatre Guide, 2008
