I'm Brianna Bauch (pronounced Baak).
I'm an Equity actor and singer based out of Danbury, Connecticut...and this bio is as short as I am!
Thanks for stopping by, take a look around!
My friends call me Bri
I was born and raised in the small town of Sandy Hook, Connecticut. I developed my love of performing in the early years of my life, as I dressed up in my favorite pink sequin boa dress and sang way too loudly into my karaoke machine. My adolescent years were spent singing in the church choir, doing Colorguard, and finding every opportunity to make those around me laugh. Performing was always so ingrained in me, but I did not know yet that it was what I was born to do.
After the tragedy of 12/14/12, something inside of me broke.
Persons all around the world were sending their condolences, thoughts, and prayers but the devastation felt in our community was tangible. I found myself deeply dejected and detached emotionally. For months I felt uneasy and afraid.
But then something shifted in me.
In the summer of 2013, many theatre professionals came to Newtown to help aid in the community's healing. They put up a truly magical production of Seussical the Musical that I played Gertrude McFuzz in, and I witnessed first-hand the unexplainable power of music, theatre, and the arts. So much occurred during that production, too much to put into words, but I felt something mend on the inside of me.
This experience brought me invaluable personal healing, and it confirmed the notion that theatre could change a life, because it did indeed change mine. That summer solidified my love of storytelling and sparked the beginning of my career.
What could be a better purpose in life than helping heal others (and yourself) through art?
27 years young, I am a hardworking Equity actor and singer based out of Danbury, Connecticut with a deep passion for performing.
I refer to myself as a "character ingenue," as I bring my own bubbly and spunky personality to every role that I bring to life.
I am 5 feet of positive energy and humor!

"In the role of Lorraine, a Detroit reporter who begins dating Valli after he splits with his first wife Mary, Brianna Bauch plays this part and others with crystal clear refinement, insight, sexiness and rattle."
