Owen Johnston II
Owner/Teacher​​

Bridget Johnston 
Owner/Teacher​​
Owen is the Director/Co-owner of ​​​​​​​​​​Roosevelt Island Music Together and The Music & Play Station.

Owen realized his love for music in the fourth grade when he joined his first school choir. This early love of music translated into an eventual career in musical theatre. Before launching Roosevelt Island Music Together in 2012, Owen spent 25 years in the Broadway companies or National Tours of 42nd Street, Shogun:The Musical, Miss Saigon, The King & I, RENT, and  Allegiance: A New Musical. 

Owen moved to Roosevelt Island in 1999 with his wife, Bridget, where they have raised their two children Jordan and Noah who are also professional actors.
Their boys have been seen or heard in dozens of national commercials and voice-overs for several series on Nickelodeon and the Disney channel as well as feature films for Disney/Pixar and 20th Century Fox/Blue Sky. 

Owen holds a BA in Music and Theatre, an MA in Theatre, and is a Certified Level 1 Music Together teacher. 

Bridget is the Assistant Director and Co-owner of Roosevelt Island Music Together and The Music & Play Station.

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 Roosevelt Island with her husband, Owen, where they have raised their two children Jordan and Noah who are all professional actors. 

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. 

Bridget is a registered Music Together teacher.
