Who Are You?
Hello! I'm Jeremy Konopka. I made my official stage debut in 4th grade in the role of Michael Darling in Peter Pan. I adored every second. We flew with the help of a strobe light and the agility of our jumping legs to create the high-tech effect. I memorized the whole script and could be caught feeding lines to the John opposite my Michael if they went up. Prior to this, I could be caught in many an auditorium with a musical going on- from high schools to community theaters and beyond. It fed my soul and had me jumping to get up there: and so I did! I went on to play many roles on those very stages and the passion and joy grew and grew.
I graduated from The University of The Arts in Philadelphia, PA where I received my BFA in Musical Theater. I also attended The Cap 21 Conservatory's Pre-College Program. I have worked regionally doing such shows as: Spring Awakening, Legally Blonde, Lend Me A Tenor, Dogfight, We Are Proud To Present... and more! In NYC, I have been a part NYMF developing 2 new musicals, as well as performing at 54 Below, The Broadway Comedy Club, and The Green Room 42. I have developed new musicals in readings and workshops in NYC and Philadelphia. I currently live in Brooklyn, NY with my Husband.
I am here. I am telling stories and connecting with other people in new ways, discovering what is possible. I am listening. I am learning. I cannot wait until we can all share our art and stories close together again.
