Brenda Cummings has been writing and performing for children for decades. As a collaborating member of The Paper Bag Players for many years, she created plays, songs and dances for young audiences all over the US, Canada and Asia. After her time with "The Bags", Brenda worked as an actor doing New York and regional theater. Brenda and her husband moved from NYC to the suburbs of New Jersey and adopted a beautiful daughter. Hoping it would keep her closer to home, Brenda wrote her own show - "Granny Green's Green Machine" - and has been performing in schools and elsewhere, introducing young children to the natural world and ways they can help make it greener. A CD of songs from "Granny Green's Green Machine" is available through Amazon. Brenda wrote and illustrated several books that are read as part of the show, and the response to them has been enthusiastic.
Brenda is on her town's environmental commission/green team and writes a monthly environmental column for Northjerseymedia.com.
