Hi everyone! My name is Bridges, and I am the director for Empress Youth Theatre’s summer production, Lion King Jr. I couldn’t be more excited for this show. I have a true love of theatre and performing, and I adore working with youth and inspiring that same passion in them. The Lion King is a personal favorite of mine, since my very first choir solo was “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King!”
Outside of theatre, I’m currently pursuing my Master’s in Human Development and Social Policy at the University of Utah. My focus is working on adolescents with autism spectrum disorder as they transition to adulthood, and all of the joys and challenges that accompany that. I love watching shows with my amazing husband, Aaron, who shares my love of theatre. We actually just got to see Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway! Our favorite shows to see, though, are always the ones we see to support family and friends. I also love reading and writing, and I'm a budding photographer. I am so excited to get to know all of you! Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
