Jim Sullivan


Born and raised in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Jim moved to the Raleigh area from Washington, DC, along with his new bride, Mary Ann, in the fall of 1969 and they’ve very happily stayed for the past 38 years. Following retirement from the U.S. Federal Government in 1996, Jim enrolled in North Carolina State University (Class of 1999, History, Magna Cum Laude) where he first caught the “acting bug.” Since then he has appeared in over 20 local theatre productions. Most recently he’s been seen in The Grapes of Wrath, for the Justice Theatre Project, Gypsy for Meredith Presents Theatre, Einstein’s Dreams for Burning Coal, Moon over Buffalo for Raleigh Little Theatre, and The Butler Did It for NC State University Theatre. “I’m very pleased and grateful to have been asked to become a member of the 2007-2008 Burning Coal Theatre Company.”
