Gracie Fojtik (she/her) is New York based Actor, Writer, Director, Producer, and Teaching Artist.  Hailing from the mountains of Utah, she fell in love with storytelling at a very young age. She chased this passion and left home at 15 to attend Interlochen Arts Academy. Fojtik went on to graduate from Fordham University’s Theater Program with honors, study abroad at the Moscow Art Theater and earn her Master’s in Acting from the American Conservatory Theater. There she was seen in Cymbeline (A.C.T. Mainstage), As You Like It (a filmed-musical adaptation), Far Away, Jack and Jill, and The Moors. Fojtik has also performed live at Williamstown Theater Company (Community Works), participated in readings with Middle Voice at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater and Primary Stages. And has recently been seen in front of the camera in indie shorts Eli, Briefly, The Garden Will Not Crumble and Dekes Art (in post). Gracie's award winning film "SALTY," for which she served as writer, actress, and producer, enjoyed a triumphant festival circuit, captivating audiences at prestigious events such as the Seattle Film Festival, Louisville International Film Festival, and numerous others.


As a director, she assisted Pam Mackinnon on A.C.T. 's production of Fefu and her Friends. Gracie directed Ernest and the Pale Moon (A.C.T. Skyfest), The Key (Chain Theater Co), Action (Fordham University), and workshopped Louisiana Garbage Kings and I Like Fantasy Because I can Escape the Real World on Zoom during the pandemic. She’s also worked with Dawn Saito helping with movement direction in her productions of Macbeth and The House of Bernarda Alba.


Most recently, Gracie co-founded Foyle Films and the _Film.Roll_ Project with Cason Doyle. Where they cast dice upon lists of subjects, shot numbers, ‘sorceries,’ and styles and make short films out of the results. A perfect arena for her multi-hyphen interests, where she has acted, directed, written and produced multiple shorts. 


When she isn’t telling a story, Gracie can be found obsessing over her dog Quino, escaping to the mountains or starting deep convos with friends. She aims to create a community that is diverse in beings, queer in thinking and honest in transformation. She is drawn to innovative, at times silly, disruptive, curious, revealing, feminist, surprising, bold art. And of course, loves to try on a good hat.
