Glenda Warkentin grew up on a farm between Lethbridge and Coaldale. She eventually attended Lethbridge College and received a certificate in interior design there. She then attended the Rosebud School of the Arts and produced The Last Five Years as her final project. She planned on moving away from Rosebud after graduation, but made the hamlet her permanent residence when she married Rosebud Theatre's stage manager.
Glenda Warkentin is a Canadian actor living in Rosebud, Alberta, Canada. In 2010, she acted in Prime Stock Theatre's productions of Much Ado About Nothing, as well as The Comedy of Errors. In 2011, she took on the role of Ma in a theatrical adaptation of W. O. Mitchell's collection of short stories Jake and the Kid. Also in 2011, she portrayed Marta in the premiere of She Has a Name, a play about child sex tourism. She acknowledged finding acting in the play an emotional challenge, and said that she did not previously realize the depth of the problem of human trafficking. Stephen Waldschmidt, the director of the production, suggested that Warkentin audition for the play after having seen her perform at Rosebud Theatre. She reprised the role of Marta in the 2012 tour of She Has a Name. Despite growing up very close to Lethbridge, the tour's opening performance marked the first time that she had performed professionally as an actor in the city, an event she attested to looking forward to. She has also performed in Theatre Prospero's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream as Titania.
