Actor / Director / Teacher / Coach


Welcome to the new Jere Van Patten dot com! On this site you will find what shows I am performing in or directing, classes I'm teaching, my coaching schedule and even information for those of you looking for piano and voice instruction offered by my wife, Allyson Van Patten.  Newly added to the site is an education section which you can see my philosophy of education, work samples, certifications and more.  There is also an added guestbook, blog, and photos/videos.  So, grab a diet coke and have a look around.
