Ryan Patrick O'Donnell

RYAN PATRICK O'DONNELL (DIRECTOR) After completing his degree in theatre performance at Northern Arizona University, and armed with a few decades of clowning and theatre under his belt, Ryan found this awesome community in Washington where it felt like home. Re-inspired, he quickly became a regular on the stage around these parts. Ryan's first directing turn at BPA was as assistant director to Ken Michels for Peter and the Starcatcher. He'll be directing the 2018/2019 season opener Return to the Forbidden Planet. As usual, Ryan would like to thank his parents for rarely saying "no", his brothers for always having his back, and James for, amongst so very many things, taking care of the menagerie and mixing the drinks strong. Most of all, many thanks to the audiences, volunteers, leadership, and artists who make BPA shows great!
