My name is Jon Riddleberger

 and I'm a New York based actor, writer, and puppeteer. I'm a member of the New York based theater company Theater Reconstruction Ensemble. My various endeavors have taken me far and wide: from the mountains of Montana with The Montana Artist’s Refuge to The Little Angel Puppet Theater in London to tiny tin huts in El Salvador with Artists for the 23rd Century to The Orb in Tokyo  with "War Horse".

       Most recently I toured with the first US tour of The National Theater of London's “War Horse”.  In New York I have performed at HERE Arts Center, LaMaMa, Dixon Place, Columbia University, The Lark, Manhattan Rep, and other venues. Regional credits include: “Shipwrecked!” (Actors Theatre of Louisville), “Brink!” (Humana Festival), “Measure for Measure” (The Rudyard Kipling), “Love’s Labour’s Lost” and “Tartuffe” with the Next Stage Ensemble (Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey) and “Apparition” by Anne Washburn and directed by Lila Neugebauer.

     I received my BFA from NYU Tisch School of the Arts Experimental Theatre Wing.

My full-length play “The Ballad of Thimblebear” is currently in development and was last seen workshopping in Louisville.
