Bridgette Richards is an actor, writer, teacher, and speech coach here in Indianapolis. She has been published in several on-campus publications during her studies, including Butler's Archives Entertainment Magazine and the University of Edinburgh's 50  Square, where she also served as copy editor and Reading Night director. After obtaining her Masters degree at the University of Edinburgh this past August, where she worked as a judge for the lauded James Tait Black award, Bridgette worked with Summerhall Productions as a broadcast journalist for the Edinburgh International Book Festival. An actor lucky enough to study for a time at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, she has worked in recent years with a number of local companies, including The Phoenix Theatre, EclecticPond Theatre Company, and Hoosier Bard. Back home again after her whirlwind year abroad, Bridgette currently teaches acting and performance through the Butler Community Arts School, and serves as a head coach for the North Central High School speech team. She is also working on completing her first novel and short story collection.
