Joel Ochoa


Joel is so excited to be making his Panto debut! A third-year MFA Acting grad student at Academy of Art University, Joel moved to the Bay Area in August of 2022 from the Midwest after graduating from Millikin University. Bay Area Credits include: A Chorus Line (SF Playhouse), Mame, Bright Star* (42nd Street Moon – *cancelled production), The Tempest (SF Shakespeare Festival), Macbeth and Julius Caesar Twisted (Marin Shakespeare Company). Recent on-screen credits include Take Me There (Frameline47 Official Selection), Under the Lights (coming late 2024), and commercials with Pegasus Solar and Exo Inc. When not performing, Joel can be seen as a teaching artist (Marin Shakespeare, NCTC, Berkeley Rep), a social media associate, and drinking a good coffee. His thanks to the whole team for this special show and to the people that push him to be a better artist and a better human – this one’s for you.
