From popping corn and tearing tickets to event planning and development, we’re working hard seven days a week to bring you the fantastic food, drink, programming and community hub that you love.
Wondering who we are and what makes us tick?
We’re part of the Bedford Playhouse Team…. and it’s nice to meet you!
KIM SPEEGLE, Interim Executive Director. Kim has been involved in the playhouse since 2015. She served as Treasurer and Vice Chair of the Board until she took on her current role as Interim Executive Director. She was instrumental in overseeing the construction and renovation of the theater. A Bedford resident for over 20 years, she is excited about bringing the Playhouse and all it has to offer to the community. Her favorite movie is whatever is playing during the Classic Tuesday Series because if “John Farr thinks it is a classic, it has to be great”.
DAN FRIEDMAN, Director of Development. Dan Friedman is a lifelong film fanatic who takes time off from the movies to oversee development for the Playhouse. Dan has worked with and for non-profit arts organizations of all sizes and disciplines for over 15 years and volunteers with local community theaters whenever his schedule permits. Choosing his favorite movie is similar to choosing his favorite child -- but at the top are "Sunset Boulevard", "The Man Who Would Be King", and "Duck Soup".
COURTNEY DAVIS WALKER, Director of Marketing & Communications. Courtney has worked in communications and special events for nearly two decades in NYC and Westchester County. She began her career in television at NBC Universal and is a lifelong fan of film. Courtney is thrilled to be bringing her experience and love of the arts to the Playhouse.
When she’s not pitching a journalist or planning a campaign, Courtney is an avid runner, singer and TV news junkie. She enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons. RomComs are high on her viewing list and her favorite film is, you guessed it, "When Harry Met Sally."
BIJHAN CLARK, Director of Theater Operations. Bijhan is proud to be the Director of Operations here at Bedford Playhouse and has enjoyed almost a decade of management roles at other distinguished local theaters including The Ridgefield Playhouse and The Prospector Theater. Besides watching and discussing movies, some of his hobbies involve collecting retro videogames, fly-fishing and homebrewing beer. His favorite movie is "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi".
RENEE WALLACE, Floor Manager & Marketing Assistant.
