Tina Munoz Pandya
Tina is a Washington, D.C. native who relocated to Chicago in 2014 after graduating from the University of Michigan with a BA in Drama and Women's Studies. While still in college, Tina spent time in London cementing her obsession with Shakespeare at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, as well as here in Chicago at the School at Steppenwolf in 2013. She is proud to call this city her new home, and has had the pleasure of working with Jackalope Theatre, Shattered Globe Theatre, The Hypocrites, Steep Theatre, and The House Theatre of Chicago, among others. In 2015, Tina began a year-long tour with the National Players, performing in their repertory season of A Midsummer Night's Dream, Julius Caesar, and A Tale of Two Cities. In addition to acting in all three shows, Tina was also the Technical Director for the tour, overseeing set-builds in each new venue and adapting to different spaces on the fly. It was a year of excitement, exhaustion, and total insanity and she is so grateful for the experience. It was there that she discovered her passion for teaching, and she continues to share her love of theatre with young people as a teaching artist with The Viola Project.
Tina is a proud member of The Hypocrites Development Ensemble and a big fan of music, giggling, activism, and spicy food. Just don't get her started talking about horses or Harry Potter because she will never stop.
