Building Better People Productions

Drama and Theater

Lynne Childress is an accomplished teaching artist. She has been a professional actor and teaching artist for over 20 years, having started as an Acting Apprentice at the Coconut Grove Playhouse in Miami, Florida, performing in shows that toured area schools, and that all had good life messages.

She spent 2 years as the Elementary Programs Coordinator at the Folger Shakespeare Library helping to head-up Shakespeare Steps Out, a program that introduces the Bard and his world to 3-6th graders in Washington, DC. After that, she worked as the Creative Arts Team Leader for BridgeKids, the children’s ministry of Bridgeway Community Church in Columbia, MD, where she produced and sometimes wrote children’s services, and oversaw teams of performing adults and kids. Since then, she has been a teacher, assistant director and director at places like Spotlighters Theatre, Drama Learning Center, and Compass Rose Theater, where she co-directed “The Little Prince” and directed “The Brave Little Kid”, “Miss Electricity”, and a roaring 20s-flavored version of Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night”, all for Compass Rose’s Young Actors Studio, which shows young people firsthand what a life in theater is like as they learn and perform.

BBP Productions was borne out of the realization that people need to truly seek to understand each other more, while affirming their own value and worth. Through the arts, we can share this important truth to the littlest of us. We produce professional theater productions in a fun and creative way for kids and their families, which encourage all of us to be better people. We want every show, every class, and every conversation you have with us to be welcoming and affirming. Sound good? Join us!
