Teresa Bocalan



Born and bred in Seattle, Washington, Teresa has been singing longer than she's been talking. In high school, she participated in her local regional theatre’s youth program, which deepened her love for the craft. She loved feeling the joy she felt under those lights, as well as the sense of community she found in cast after cast. After graduating, she moved to New York and never looked back (other than coming home one summer to play Mimi Marquez in Rent). Teresa began studying at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy where she was taught by industry professionals such as Chryssie Whitehead, David Cady, Ray Virta, and Keith Andrews. She is passionate about defying the traditional casting bill.

Teresa has performed in theatres across the country as well as Feinstein's/54 Below within a year of graduating from AMDA. She is so thankful for every twist and turn this journey has thrown at her and cannot wait to see what comes next. In her spare time, you can find her petting puppies, sipping on a vanilla oat milk cold brew, or being asked if she's the girl from Riverdale.

She/Her/Hers. Libra sun, Taurus moon, Pisces rising. ISFJ-T. Enneagram type 3. Hogwarts house: Ravenclaw. Patronus: white swan.
