Ricky Pak


Ricky Pak is happy to make his premiere at Syracuse Stage as an actor, though he was honored to serve as director for last year’s streaming productions of Danny, King of the Basement for The Bank of America Children’s Tour and Home for the Holidays for the Syracuse Stage/Syracuse University Department of Drama main “stage” holiday show. He is an assistant professor of acting for the Department of Drama and a teaching artist with the Tectonic Theater Project in New York City. He lived in Los Angeles where he worked as a professional actor for close to 18 years prior to coming to Syracuse to teach. Pak is the artistic director of the Circle Squared Collective, a bicoastal theatre company with members in Los Angeles and Syracuse. Upcoming directorial work includes the Department of Drama’s virtual production of Id, which will debut in the spring of 2022. Recent credits: Regional Theatre: Here Comes the Sun (New York Pops Up/The REV Theater Company), Saving the Country from Itself (Su Teatro, Denver, CO.), Valley of the Heart (el Teatro Campesino/Center Theatre Group, Los Angeles, CA). Film: I Love My Dad (Hulu), The Ultimate Playlist of Noise (Hulu). He would like to express his gratitude to Melissa, Bob, and the entire Syracuse Stage team, the Department of Drama for their support, and his wife Whitney and dog Gus for their undying love.
