Siobhan Bradley Stevens – Director
Siobhan is the publicist for M&D and has been a part of many of the shows, but mainly works behind the scenes and front of the house. Siobhan was the stage manager for M&D’s first show at the Playhouse with The House of Yes, and was assistant director of The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical. When she’s not at the Playhouse, you can find her hanging with her amazing and talented husband Jason and her incredible daughters Kylie and Seddaly, or selling you some BBQ from her family-owned-and-operated food truck. She thanks you for supporting M&D, which has become a second home to her entire family. Now, more than ever, we need the arts to get us through the dark days, as it helps us remember there is always light at the end of the tunnel!
