Strangeloop adds two veterans of Chicago theatre to its Artistic Associate lineup

Strangeloop Theatre is thrilled to announce the addition of two new Artistic Associates to our company. Both are veterans of past Strangeloop productions.

The new members are:

Patricia Tinsley holds a BFA is performing arts from Rockford University, an MA in speech from Northeastern Illinois University and serves as co-artistic director of the Rebekah Theatre Project. Favorite Chicago-area acting credits include The Gin Game (Bowen Park Theatre and Rebekah Theatre Project); Midsummer Night’s Dream (Lightninghead); The Shadow Box (Rebekah Theatre Project); The Tempest (Theatre-Hikes and Performing Arts at Oakton); The Sandbox (InnateVolution); the web series, Ped Crossing and the happiest acting job in the world: playing Mrs. Santa Claus at Navy Pier! Her directing credits include work with the Women’s Theatre Alliance of Chicago, Stockyards Theatre Project and NUFAN. She has greatly enjoyed performing with Strangeloop over the past few years and is excited to begin her journey as an artistic associate.

Paul Tinsley has been doing theatre since 1963 and has amassed a long list of acting credits with such theatres as Remy Bumppo, Organic Theater Company, Piven Theatre Workshop, Theatre-Hikes and Strawdog Theatre Company. For Strangeloop, Paul has performed in Living Quarters, Maid of Orleans, R.U.R. and several Loopshops. A prolific director and writer, Paul was delighted to have his short play, Here’s My Card, performed as part of Loopshop 2015. On the small screen, you can see Paul in the pilot episode of the comedy series Family Values, now available on Amazon Studios. Paul is looking forward to joining Strangeloop as an artistic associate and continuing his role of co-artistic director for the Rebekah Theatre Project.

With the addition of Patricia and Paul, there are nine Company Members and eight Associate Company Members in Strangeloop.
