About me:

Stephanie has naturally silver hair and youthful looks. She last played Jen in ‘The Cake’ at Pacific Theatre in Vancouver, Canada. “Erla Faye Forsyth as Della and Stephanie Elgersma as Jen deliver two of the best performances you’re going to see this year...Elgersma brings such a shattering depth of feeling that her performance is one of the reasons I found it difficult to speak after the show.” -Colin Thomas
