Jillian A Bevilacqua (she/her)
Hello all! My name is Jillian A Bevilacqua, and I am the creator of the Canard Islands. I was the director, creative director, and head show writer/ story writer for the original immersive event that sparked this world! I have been a part of this project since day 1 (since day 1 was the day I wrote down the first pitch), and I hope to follow this project wherever it may go. I am a live entertainment writer by trade and a pirate by choice. Professionally, I write live events and interactive experiences for theme parks, museums, hotels, and other guest driven spaces. To me, stories exist to spread joy. Everything I do is in service of making as many people happy as possible!
