DuniganBridget is thrilled to be going back to her roots in upstate, after spending forever (a few years) in the big city.  She has spent nearly her entire life in the theatre. Growing up working at the Fort Salem Theatre began her love affair with the theatre that continues to this day.  After receiving her degree from Plattsburgh State University, she ran away to join the circus that is New York City, where she worked in many facets of theater, from leading lady on the stage with TP&co, of which she is both a founding member and Company Manager; a branch of The Theatre Project that focuses on classical theatrical pieces. She helped to create the ever popular Shakespeare Off-Broadway Series, which is committed to continuously offering evocative, affordable, and accessible productions of William Shakespeare’s work.  Extending beyond the stage into the classroom, it is their goal to influence students through the educational impact of theatre and Shakespeare’s plays  She did all these things while managing the historic Players Theatre, a landmark theater in Greenwich Village, that has been a working theater since the late 50’s, offering both an Off-Broadway and Off-Off-Broadway theatre and multiple rehearsal studios. She has stage managed multiple Off-Broadway productions and worked for the FRINGE Festival in NYC.
