Tina Muñoz Pandya
Tina is an actor, musician, and teaching artist originally from Washington, DC. She relocated to Chicago in 2014 after graduating from the University of Michigan with a BA in Drama and Women's Studies, inspired by her time at the School at Steppenwolf in 2013. Since then, she has had the pleasure of working with Jackalope Theatre, Court Theatre, The Hypocrites, Steppenwolf Theatre, Chicago Children's Theatre, Steep Theatre, Shattered Globe Theatre, and The House Theatre of Chicago, among others.
She occasionally enjoys taking her talents on the road, and has flexed her Shakespeare muscles while touring with the National Players and Montana Shakespeare in the Parks. She's also been fortunate enough to travel to some truly awesome regional theatres in DC, New York, and LA as part of The Hypocrites' wildly popular Gilbert and Sullivan repertory. A cellist and singer by training, so far she has learned to play the accordion, ukulele, spoons, and musical saw while doing these shows and is constantly adding to her musical arsenal.
She often guests with several bands around the city on different instruments, and teaches with Chicago Children's Theatre. When she's not running around doing those, you can find her cooking, watching British crime dramas, experimenting with accents, or recording for various different podcasts and radio plays. Check out her voice work, in all its silly glory, in The Vanishing Act!
