Jenna Mazzoli


Jenna Mazzoli plays the part of Rapunzel in Belle Theatre’s production of Into the Woods. Her character is truly one of the story’s most tragic figures. Her mother, the Witch, locks her in a tower without doors to protect her but, instead, condemns her to a world of isolation and loneliness. Mazzoli’s portrayal tugs at the audience’s heartstrings.

She was previously seen in the role of Bebe Benzenheimer in A Chorus Line, in which Mazzoli did an equally exceptional job with a character who suffere from low self-esteem. Although Bebe Benzenheimer was not one of the final eight chosen by the director for the show, Mazzoli was a stand-out in Fort Myers Theatre’s production of the musical.

Mazzoli’s prior stage credits include the role of Marty (one of the Pink Ladies) in Grease for Fort Myers Theatre and the title role in Little Mermaid, Jr. for Fort Myers High School. Jenna also starred in Stephen Hooper’s short film (directed and shot by Gerrie Benzing) for the 2021 Lab Theatre 24-Hour Screenwriting Challenge, a piece called Boxed In about two roommates who share more than just a space.
