Hi! It's me Grace (Gracie for long) Fojtik (foy-tech)! I'm a San Francisco based actor/theatre artist. Being from the mountains of Utah, I thought I was going to be a pro downhill ski racer, though fun (and fast), flying around stationary objects in spandex in sub zero temps turned out not to be for me.
I instead found my passion in storytelling. I left home at the ripe age of 15 to learn more about becoming an artist. I graduated from Interlochen Arts Academy and hold a B.A. in Theatre Performance from Fordham University Lincoln Center. Over the years I have 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 I have never been very good at staying in one place. I am currently a second year student in the American Conservatory Theater’s M.F.A. acting program and working as a teaching artist.

ACTOR - DIRECTOR - TEACHING ARTIST - CREATOR -
As a multidisciplinary artist, I'm drawn to innovative, at times silly, disruptive, curious, revealing theatre. I love changing my role around in theatrical spaces, and have found a home as an artist being an actor, director, teacher, and creator.

I am aiming to earn my 200 hour YTT Certification within the year. And I am currently in Citizen Artist Training at the American Conservatory Theatre, and acting as a Teaching Artist through their education department. I am available for private coaching as well. Contact for details.
One of my greatest joys is creating and adapting stories for the stage. I have been lucky enough to collaborate and devise on many projects with my peers. As well as write multiple solo shows. Contact for writing Samples.
