Wade Bradford is a playwright, a freelance writer, and an English professor. His plays have been performed in schools and theaters throughout the United States and England.
Wade has written sixteen plays, each of which has been published. His most recent works include a teen comedy about the Prom (which of course is titled "Promedy"), and a comic take on fantasy tales titled, "CSI: Neverland." In August, 2007 his script, "Conflict," won East Repertory Playhouse's "Page to Stage" Playwriting Competition.
He has worked both on stage and off at a variety of regional theaters. From 1992 to 2000, he wrote and directed seven productions for Yorba Linda Civic Light Opera's youth theater. Beginning in 2009, Wade began serving as a board member for the Canyon Theatre Guild in Santa Clarita, California. He currently teaches literature and composition courses at Moorpark College.
His first children's book, "Why Do I Have to Make My Bed?" was recently published by Tricycle Press / Random House.
A graduate of California State University, Northridge (CSUN), Wade received his B.A. in Creative Writing and his M.A. in Literature.
As an avid writer and longtime lover of the stage, I look forward to creating articles that explore the meanings of dramatic literature, the art of stage craft, and the subtle skills of great thespians, directors, and playwrights—from antiquity to present day.
