Judy Millar is a retired high school English teacher and a theatre instructor at the University of Pittsburgh, Titusville. After college and four FCOA shows in the ’70s, she moved to Southern California where she pursued her first career, acting. She worked as a professional actress and became a member of the Actors Equity Association in 1986 performing in many musicals with Patrice Munsel (Song of Norway), Nehemiah Persoff (Fiddler on the Roof), Cameron English (A Chorus Line), and Loni Ackerman (Evita) to name a few. She also worked as a writer for a pilot television studio and began work on her master’s degree at California State University, San Bernardino. As her day job, she taught middle school English and drama.
In 1988 and ‘89, the time-consuming acting and teaching careers were happily overridden by the birth of her children, Jayme and Jolene. When daughter #2 was born, she and her husband Tom decided California was not the place to raise children, so they moved back to Pennsylvania. Since then, Judy has worked in the local theatres. She performs, directs, and mentors many actors. She has published 10 one-act plays and a three-week curriculum book with Eldridge Publishing Company for teaching drama in the English class.
After 50 years of performing and directing stage productions, she is rediscovering her love of screen acting. She has worked as an extra in movies with Russell Crowe, Will Smith, and Jake Gyllenhaal. She enjoys working with Point Park and Carnegie Mellon students in many film roles. She also traveled to Chicago to be an extra on Chicago Fire. Watch for her in Giant Eagle, UPMC and any other commercials she can land. Other interests include spending time with her husband, daughters, and grandson; singing; running; kayaking; landscaping, and just about anything that can be done outside. Her first show with FCOA was as makeup crew for 1776 in 1976.
