BRENNA FREESTONE-GILBERT was born and raised in Fort Collins and is happy to be back after a nearly-ten-year hiatus while living in New York. Brenna made her directorial debut years ago with OpenStage etcetera's production of Boy Gets Girl, followed by Limelight Theatre's production of Brighton Beach Memoirs. She is best known for directing Bug - which left audiences squirming - as well as The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), which also left audiences squirming, but for totally different reasons. Both productions were with OpenStage Theatre. Prior to leaving for New York, you might recognize on-stage Brenna from such productions as The Book of Liz (Sister Constance Butterworth/Yolanda Foxley/others), An Ideal Husband (Mrs. Chevely), Dead Man’s Cell Phone (Jean), and Noises Off (Poppy) all with OpenStage Theatre, as well as Marjorie in Extremities with OpenStage etcetera. Additional favorites include Kattrin in Mother Courage, Laura in The Glass Menagerie and Estelle in No Exit with Bas Bleu Theatre. She is excited that her first dip back into Fort Collins theatre is directing The Revolutionists!
