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.

adapting for covid
My usual K-8 drama curriculum had to be adjusted this year to adhere to COVID-19 guidelines - but the show must go on! My students and school have been flexible and allowed for many performances to be recorded with a green screen and shared virtually.
