Carlène Pochette, originally from the French Saint Martin Island in the West Indies, is thrilled to return to the Clarence Brown Theatre for the strangers. Currently a third-year MFA Acting Candidate at UT, she last performed at the Clarence Brown Theatre in A Christmas Carol as the Ghost of Christmas Past, Three Sisters as Masha, and Around the World in 80 Days as various characters. Prior to that, she has performed in many independent film and theatre productions in Philadelphia to include: Ruined (Stagecrafters Theatre), VI Degrees (Adrienne Theatre), Voiceless (C3 Studios), The Piano Lesson (Steel River Playhouse), By the Way, Meet Vera Stark (Silver Stage Company) and The Last Days of Judas Iscariot. Carlène holds a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and is a proud union member of AEA. www.carlenepochette.com. She hopes that all will be reminded of our shared human connection and exhibit compassion, empathy, and love, in a society that doesn’t always embrace these things.
