Amanda Thompson Brandenburg admits she was bitten by the theater bug early in life, during a First Baptist Church children’s play where she sang publicly for the first time. During her growing-up years in Sulphur Springs, she was onstage as often as she could be in school productions, children’s summer workshops and local community theater. In college and away from home, she stayed close to her roots and in recent years she and her husband moved to her hometown to raise their twin sons.
During 2017, Amanda is very engaged, playing a number of real-life roles including Mom, President of her own production company Shining Star Productions and professional actress with the Repertory Company Theater in Dallas.
Amanda sits down with Enola Gay in the Channel 18 studio to tell us about her journey.
