The Teri McConville
Scholarship Fund has
been established to assist women over the age of 35 who have
the passion to follow their dreams.
Teri McConville was a proud graduate of Portland Actors Conservatory
Class of 2001. After many years of marriage, motherhood, and a successful
career as a hair stylist, Teri returned to her first love:
the stage. Her onstage roles at PAC were Teresa in The Memory of Water and
Gertie in Fuddy Meers. Teri served as Assistant Director of Biloxi
Blues and Fortinbras at PAC in 2002, and directed Little Red
and the Hoods for the Conservatory’s Summer on Stage program. In 2003,
Teri’s fundraising efforts helped make possible the remount of A Piece
of My Heart, for which she served as Assistant Director and Stage Manager.
She was Assistant Director for Two Rooms in 2004, and co-costume designer
for several shows at PAC in 2003 and 2004. Other theatrical credits include Ellen
in Two Rooms at Sandy Actors Theatre and the matchmaker in Crossing
Delancey at Magdelyn Theatre.
After graduation in 2001, Teri became Chair of the Board of Directors at the
Portland Actors Conservatory. This was a difficult time for the conservatory,
and Teri dedicated her time, energy, and money toward PAC’s survival and
eventual triumph. She was a dynamic and dedicated leader whose passion for the
programs of the Conservatory inspired all of those around her.
Her untimely passing after a long and courageous battle with cancer left her friends at PAC bereft. We miss her passion, energy and commitment. Most of all, we miss her.
