Actress with local roots lands ‘dream’ role in ‘Phantom’
In 1995, there came a defining moment in the young life of Jordan Ensign.
She saw a production of the musical “The Phantom of the Opera,” and the 5-year-old was hooked.
“Phantom was the first time I knew I loved music,” she said.
Now, at 27, she’s part of the production.
Ensign is part of the ensemble cast and occasionally plays the lead female role, Christine Daae, in the traveling production of “Phantom,” which will wrap up its series of central Ohio performances Sunday, Jan. 14, in the Ohio Theatre, 39 E. State St. in downtown Columbus.
Ensign’s life has been all about musical training with lessons in piano and voice, acting in Columbus Children’s Theater and singing in school choirs.
It might appear that performing would be a natural for the 2008 graduate of Worthington Christian High School.
