Mary Glen Fredrick is an actor, writer, and filmmaker who grew up tri-coastal, if you count the Missouri River as a beach.
She adored Shakespeare long before appearing in ten of his plays, and has more recently become a trusted collaborator in the development of new work. She has both training and onstage experience in mask, commedia dell'arte, and devised processes. Her belief that acting is an exploration of the human condition was forged with a BA in Race and Ethnicity Studies from Stanford University, and refined with an MFA in Acting from UC San Diego.
The third of five children, she’s an indiscriminate sleeper, better-than-you’d-expect longboarder, and proud ex-owner of a 1997 half-ton pickup truck.

“Playing the role of Petruchio…is third-year MFA actor Mary Glen Fredrick, as appealing a tamer as one could wish, all swashbuckler and endearingly gauche masculinity. It’s quite obvious that Kate’s in love at first sight and so was I.”
-Charlene Baldridge, The Taming of the Shrew(d)
“…special consideration must be given…to actor Mary Glen Fredrick, who was able to describe the contents of Hattie’s heart better than I ever could.”
-David Jacobi, Widower
“Mary Glen Fredrick (does) a wonderful job of conveying the soul-killing nature of (her) living and working environment…”
