Bryna Kearney is a New York based actor and director with a surprisingly endearing sardonic sensibility. Raised in North Carolina and Connecticut, she went on to study theatre, dance, and voice at Phillips Academy Andover in Andover, MA. She then attended NYU Tisch’s Experimental Theatre Wing before returning to Connecticut where she worked with companies across the state as an actor, director, and choreographer.

She was an original member and board member for Slant of Light Theater Company where she discovered a true passion for developing new works, directing their first original main stage production, and co-writing and directing their first children’s touring production.

Bryna moved back to New York City in 2014 when she began training with The Simon Studio and TAP NYC, and has been performing and directing nonstop ever since.

In addition to having the opportunity to play several fantastic “bucket list” roles, she also had the opportunity to direct and co-write a new musical at The 13th Street Repertory Theater.

Bryna is currently a Resident Director at The AlphaNYC Theater Company where you can frequently find her performing as well. A true nerd at heart, however, she does make sure to allot a little time each week to brushing up on her Star Trek trivia, thereby aiding her second, non-theatrical passion – telling jokes that no one thinks are funny.
