Blueberry Pond Theatre Appoints New Artistic Director, Announces Upcoming Season

ANTHONY VALBIRO, Blueberry Pond Theatre Ensemble's new Artistic Director, has lived a life in the Theatre World for over forty years. Actor, director, choreographer, scenic designer, playwright---he's done it all and continues to excel in the myriad crafts that make theatre the most magical and creatively satisfying experience for both audiences and performers.

Anthony attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and has worked with a diverse range of renowned theatrical luminaries from Hugh Whitfield to Max Fisher. He has directed and choreographed numerous productions in the tri-state area ranging from George M, Zorba and On The Town to Steel Magnolias, The Zoo Story and the off- Broadway production of Grey Spades. He directed all five works of Pamela Palmer Mutino's, including Swish-Maria in the Mourning, which completed a sold out run at Manhattan Rep. His self-directed autobiographical piece, Our Lady of Famiglia, has played The Duplex, Raw Space, Pulse Theater and Blueberry Pond Theatre Ensemble at the Laylon Theatre in Ossining. His last directoral success for Blueberry Pond Theatre Ensemble was Jean-Paul DeVellard's The Conversation at Choctaw Junction.
