Patricia Berg

Patricia Berg-Drazin began her theatre career at the Provincetown Playhouse. She did a bit of everything — mainly working as a Production Manager/Lighting Designer. She also helped build sets, make costumes, find props, and when needed, swept the floors — something that being on the beach there was a constant need for.

After two seasons, she moved to Boston where she attended Emerson College. She worked in a variety of theatre environments – ranging from lighting concerts to working with Sarah Caldwell on an American premiere. She worked on the original Jacques Brel production and with John Kani and Winston Ntshona on Sizwe Banzi is Dead.

She production managed and designed lights for a touring mime and worked at WGBH in the shop and in the field. A favorite was being a part of the design and build of the museum presenting the reenactment of the battle of Bunker Hill. She returned with her children some twenty years later, in awe of what was accomplished without the technology that is now available.

She attempted to continue her work in theatre when her children were little but found that schlepping little ones to tech rehearsals was not sustainable — though it did lead to some great stories. Now that her little ones are grown she is delighted to have the time and opportunity to get involved again.
