Bridget was born and raised in Southern California in a family that played with music everyday. Her father Vic, a playwright and composer, would make up songs about the moon, the rain, fishing or anything that would reflect the days activities. Her Mom, Lita, would create harmonies, and singing together became the family nighttime ritual. Her love of music and performing grew into a career in musical theatre that has taken her all over the Country and the World with The American Music Company, Holland America Cruises, various regional theatre productions, and the First National Tour of Miss Saigon. After performing for fifteen years, Bridget settled in New York with her husband, Owen, where they have raised their two children Jordan and Noah who are all professional actors on Broadway, television and film.

Their boys have been seen or heard in dozens of national commercials, voice-overs for several series on Nickelodeon and the Disney channel, feature films for Disney/Pixar and 20th Century Fox/Blue Sky. In 2012 the Johnston’s began their Music Together journey by opening Roosevelt Island Music Together where both Bridget and Owen are registered Music Together teachers.
