Gigi Teeley

 

(producing director)

Gigi started her performing career at the age of three in a production of Madame Butterfly, which both of her parents were in. She grew up and lived in New York City until she moved to the Berkshires 17 years ago with her family. Her diverse career has taken her from the stages of New York City Opera to Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. Her voice can also be heard on countless recordings.  Gigi was the musical director and played keyboards in Beatlemania on Broadway. She has also toured the world. She taught at Barnard College for four years and is currently on the faculty at Bard College at Simon's Rock, where she has been teaching voice and vocal performance since 2002. Her creative life here in The Berkshires continues to keep her busy with singing, teaching, and the musical direction of many local productions. However, her proudest accomplishment by far is raising Caitlin and Jackson Teeley, alongside her husband, Tom. Working with her family is a dream come true, and it is also a thrill working with all of these amazing young people.
