UConn Today: Pat McCorkle Perfectly Cast in Role as Teacher, Acting Talent Scout


If you’ve attended plays on Broadway, Off-Broadway, or at regional theaters such as Connecticut Repertory Theatre in Storrs, New Haven’s Long Wharf Theatre, Spoleto Festival in South Carolina, or Toronto Centre Stage in Canada; seen films such as “The Thomas Crown Affair,” “Die Hard with a Vengeance,” or “The Year of Living Dangerously;” or watched network or cable television shows such as “Sesame Street,” “The L Word,” or “Chappele’s Show,” you have seen the work of Pat McCorkle, adjunct professor of practice in casting and performance in the Department of Dramatic Arts.

You won’t have seen McCorkle herself; rather, it is the long list of notable and award-winning actors that she has cast in those productions on stage, film, and television.

McCorkle, who joined the UConn faculty in 2007, has taught courses in “Acting for the Camera” and “Audition Technique,” and has prepared students in the Department of Dramatic Arts for their “Showcase” performances, all while continuing to maintain a very active role at McCorkle Casting Ltd. in New York City, one of the leading casting firms in the nation.
