Patricia Noonan is an actor, writer, and educator from Philadelphia, PA.
An alumna of Boston College’s Presidential Scholar Program, she has focused her work on expanding the stories we tell about women on stage and screen and expanding access to arts education for all. Her writing projects have been developed and presented at Goodspeed, NAMT, 54 Below, The Pitch, and the Philadelphia Women’s Theatre Festival. They include the 1940s-meets-2020s world of Sweetwater, a musical about the WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots, the first women to fly military planes for the U.S. in WWII), the modern Irish fairy tale Learning How to Drown, and the animated Adventures of Ara set in the world of music itself.
As an actor, she has created roles in shows including Maury Yeston’s Death Takes a Holiday and Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and appeared in revivals at Lincoln Center and City Center in NYC and theaters across the country. Patricia has performed nationally with symphonies and can be heard on the cast albums for Death Takes a Holiday and Merrily We Roll Along. Where theater is currently being streamed, you can catch her in the PBS “Live from Lincoln Center” production of Carousel or watch re-runs of her singing back-up vocals for Josh Groban on Jimmy Fallon. She made her TV debut as Macie-Lynn Pearce on Law & Order: SVU and feature film debut in The Light of the Moon.
She is a regular Guest Artist with the Graduate Musical Theater Writing Program at NYU and has been a Guest Artist at Emerson College, Boston College, Temple University, and Sacred Heart University as well as a proud teaching artist in New York and Philadelphia public schools for over eight years.
