Patricia always knew she wanted to grow up and be an actor, and after accidentally knocking the 13 year old boy playing Demetrius on his face during an 8th grade production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, she knew she was destined to be a star. An awkward, clumsy star. Patricia received a B.F.A. in Music Theatre from The Hartt School and will brag about it to anyone who will listen. Although she took a brief hiatus from performing after college in which she played roller derby (no, really), Patricia is excited to be back and ready to kick-ball-change her way into your heart. Her most recent productions have included Miss Nelson is Missing (Cheryl) with Playhouse on Park Theatre and an album called First Draught (available on iTunes) with the A Cappella group What's on Tap. She has a solo on it and it sounds incredible.
