about

Welcome!

My name is Whitney Minarik. Originally from Detroit, I'm a Chicago-based actor, director, and teaching artist. I have a passion for performance, but also love working in theatre education, with young people in particular.

I have trained at Wayne State University, the Moscow Art Theatre School, and The Artistic Home Studio. Additionally, I have a Master's degree in Theatre Education from The Catholic University of America.
