See Bridget Young’s new monologue WILD ORPHAN BABY at BPA September 30

Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA) presents
Bridget Young’s new monologue WILD ORPHAN BABY
With folk-music trio The Lonely Coast
Saturday, September 30 at 7:30 – 10:00 p.m. at BPA

Please join us September 30 for a special evening of laughs and musical entertainment, with proceeds benefitting Morrow Manor. Bridget Young’s new monologue, Wild Orphan Baby, is a funny, poignant, and true story about growing up fast during hard times. The opening act features The Lonely Coast, a trio of folk music artists who perform mesmerizing close-harmony folk arrangements from Eastern Europe and the Americas.

A hometown girl, Bridget grew up on the mean streets of Bainbridge Island and Indianola. The quirky and surprising story of her family’s fall from grace and her determination to patch together a better future for herself in difficult circumstances should resonate with teenagers, anyone who survived New Age parents and those who have been or who work with the hidden poor.

Bridget Young originally started performing Realtor Lady using stories from her real estate career as a way to entertain her fellow agents. She has since written and performed numerous shows about motherhood called Because I Said So. Her newest monologue is a humorous and heartfelt story about her childhood called Wild Orphan Baby. Bridget has performed at The Admiral Theatre in Bremerton, Bainbridge Performing Arts, The Indianola Clubhouse, Suncadia Lodge, 12 Minutes Max at On The Boards, The Rendezvous, The Bainbridge Art Museum, and the Jewelbox Theatre. All proceeds from her performances characteristically go to support non-profit organizations and needy families.

All proceeds from Bridget’s September 30 performance at BPA go to Morrow Manor, which offers safe, supportive, affordable, longer-term housing for survivors of domestic violence in Kitsap County. Visit Morrow Manor online at www.supportmorrowmanor.org.
