In Memoriam
Jeannette Clift George, 1925 – 2017


Jeannette Clift George, a Golden Globe nominated actress, native Houstonian and local theater company founder, died on December 23, 2017. She was 92. During five decades as artistic director of A.D. Players, Jeanette Clift George devoted her adult life to her belief “God would do something about the need for Christian theatre.” Jeannette’s surviving family and legacy are found in the theatre company she founded, A.D. Players, the many colleagues who admired her work and learned from her example, and the countless others who were inspired by her faithful lifetime of words and performances.

"Mrs. George’s talents—as an actress, a playwright, a speaker and teacher—were well-known and prolific. Her legacy will live in the hearts of those whose lives she touched with these gifts, and in the ongoing work of A. D. Players—the theatre company she founded in 1967, and led for nearly five decades. Those who knew and loved Jeannette well will remember her laughter, her winsome teaching, her life-long passion for theatre and her steadfast love for her Lord Jesus Christ. Her presence among us will be sorely missed." - A. D. Players
