In this episode, I talk about Theatre for Young Audiences as a profession, how working at Payless Show Source can change your life, and the value of authentic kindness with Lynne Childress.
Lynne Streeter Childress (she/her) is a playwright, actor, teaching artist, singer, director, and the founder and artistic director of Building Better People Productions, a professional theater company based in Annapolis, MD, that does shows for young audiences all based in themes of kindness, respect and the things that make us all better people. Her show, “We Got It!: A Show About Empathy”, is among several of BBPP’s shows that are currently traveling to schools in Maryland and surrounding areas. This is her 25th year in professional theater, with much of that experience in theater for young audiences. This includes performing at the Kennedy Center, Arena Stage and Adventure Theater, and teaching for institutions like the Folger Shakespeare Library. Through all those experiences, Lynne has seen firsthand how theater can communicate the most important things in the clearest and most interesting of ways, especially to young people. Lynne lives in Annapolis, MD with her husband and son.
