Instructor: Patti O’Hara has been performing on community and professional stages in Madison, WI, Chicago, IL and now Boise for…well, a long time. Patti is the founder and host of Boise’s monthly Actors Forum. In a previous life, she taught high school, and was a training consultant in various corporate, government, and non-profit settings. Her father would tell spellbinding stories about his adventures as a traveling salesman in the Midwest and life as the youngest child of immigrants. As a trained speech therapist, she savors the delicious accents, dialects and character voices of people she meets. A degree in Behavioral Disabilities has given her invaluable insights into different personality types- including all of her own. (Right, Alice? Yes, Patti.)
