“My mission is to use my gifts and talents to benefit my brothers and sisters of the world, by ministering to their hearts with laughter, inspiration and encouragement.
The entertaining, performing and writing career of Mary Bright, spanning more than 25 years, was inspired by her beloved South Carolina roots, deep appreciation of music, dramatic arts and coming of age during the height of the Civil Rights Movement. She credits her parents as the source of her self-reliance, integrity, and discipline.
As a writer, she has penned and directed plays, and created various stage characters, well known for their quick wit and old time wisdom. As an actor, one of the characters she portrays, Sista’ Gal, speaks in the Gullah/Geechee dialect, and “gits to tell ‘em what de Lawd done say.” One of her goals is to help preserve this dialect, and to offer audiences a unique entertainment experience.
She has spent countless hours volunteering for 4-H programs, Boys and Girls Clubs of America and many other life coaching and theatrical opportunities. Through her efforts many disadvantaged youths have attended enrichment camps she single-handedly funded. Her relentless message of hope, love and faith has touched many hearts, and has assisted in guiding the paths of several young people.
Having many styles of writing, Mary maintains a keen sense of humor, and enjoys writing and performing to catch the attention of a younger audience. Though her work often is disguised as fun, there are usually hidden gems of knowledge tucked in for good measure.
