Creative Team


Susan Wiltfang-Thomas

Artistic Director

Susan has been involved in youth theatre and teaching actors for over 35 years. She left her career as a Casting Assistant for "Port Charles" and "General Hospital" to be a full-time mother to her twin girls Emma & Abigail. She has worked as an Equity and SAG actor, but fell in love with teaching. She has conducted numerous seminars for children and their families on the film/television industry. She has taught a number of commercial and soap opera intensives for AIA. Although her main focus is helping youth develop confidence both onstage and off , her main goal is to continue making Broadway Bound Players a motivating and nurturing company where the entire family can express their creative talents. Susan is working on bringing BB Players to communities which are in need of the creative arts. Susan's philosophy- Theatre is a place where EVERYONE has a place to belong and call home.

Bailey Summer Yalung 

Costumer/Production Assistant

 21 years old and currently working towards finishing a double major in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. Bailey has always had a passion for the creative arts and working with the kiddos! She debuted  with BBPLAYERS at the age of 11 years old. Very shy soul until theater and Ms. Susan’s encouragement helped her to come out of her shell and grow in confidence! She has always loved performing and sharing the stage with her younger sisters (Sabine, Bryce, Brynn and Bellini). During high school years she was given the opportunity to direct   alongside Ms. Susan. Since then she has been choreographing, assisting, stage managing and now designing costumes! BB Players is so lucky to the many talents of Miss Bailey Summer!
