Gracie Fojtik (she/her) is San Francisco based Actor, Writer, Director, Producer, and Teaching Artist. Gracie is originally from the mountains of Park City, Utah, and has chased art across the world since she was 15. From Interlochen Arts Academy, to Fordham University, to Moscow, to The American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. She’s always found a story to tell, create or dive into. Gracie has performed at Williamstown Theatre Company (Community Works), participated in readings with Middle Voice at Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre and Primary Stages, Studied with the Moscow Art Theatre and trained to become a Yoga Teacher in Chicago, proving she has never been very good at staying in one place. 

 

Gracie is currently rounding out her second year as a M.F.A. acting student with A.C.T., working as a teaching artist in San Francisco, and is a co-creator of an in house (no literally, in house) production company with her roommates during the pandemic called gnut house productions. Where they wrote, produced and acted in multiple filmed shorts all to be released in 2021. Her most recent collaborative creations, The Garden Will Not Crumble, and Routine were shown at A.C.T. in 2021. As a multidisciplinary artist, Gracie’s drawn to innovative, at times silly, disruptive, curious, revealing, queer, feminist, surprising art. Gracefojtik.com @graciefojtik
