My name is Melani Finney. I have had the pleasure of working with BBPP since 2017 as a teaching artist, stage manager, director and actor! While I was employed here, I went to receive my Masters in Acting from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco University. My most notable attributes would have to be reviving my role in Friendlier Fables and Thoughtful Tales, directing Tasty Vegetables and stage managing our touring show We Got it!. The highlight of my employment here would have to be watching the children grow as young artists, as I not only inspire them but they inspire me. Working with young artists is a joy like no other and here at BBPP I’m lucky to find that joy.
