Aaron Gendreau-Visco and Jessalyn Sadler Correa
Aaron Gendreau-Visco and Jessalyn Sadler Correa consider the Little Theatre of Fall River their second family. Both performers have been long time members of Little Theatre and have shared their talents with the company for 25+ years.
Aaron, who plays the lead role of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, is thrilled to be on stage again. Not only is he a present Board Member and has been on the Board of Directors for many years in the roles of Ticket Chair, Playbill Chair, and Director at Large, Aaron has also been an artistic director, an assistant director, and costume designer for multiple LTFR productions. A Renaissance man, you might say, Aaron strongly believes in the organization and hopes that his efforts now may help to keep the organization going for years to come. He feels that he has a responsibility to give back to Little Theatre so that his daughters, Elle and Lilah, may enjoy community theatre in the future. As an actor and vocalist for the group, his favorite roles have been Christ in Jesus Christ Superstar, Matt in The Fantasticks, Billy in 42nd Street, and Mike in A Chorus Line. Aaron will be directing Legally Blonde for LTFR this spring.
Jessalyn Sadler Correa, Fantine in Les Miserables, shares Aaron’s passion for theatre. Participating in shows alongside Aaron for years, Jessalyn is also a seasoned vocalist and performer. You may have seen her last as Maria in The Sound of Music (LTFR) and Rizzo in Grease (LTFR). One of Jessalyn’s fondest memories of Little Theatre is playing the role of Connie when she was 13 years old in A Chorus Line. She remembers singing, dancing, and laughing with Aaron “on the line.” Aaron and Jessalyn’s friendship spans over 25 years, and Jessalyn has enjoyed growing up in the Little Theatre community alongside Aaron. Throughout the years, he has been her director, co-director, mentor, friend, and even her babysitter!
It is such a thrill for these two members to be able to perform together again. Be sure to catch their performances in Les Mis!
