LACEY PETRUCCI (Yitzhak) still can’t believe this is happening! As a student of the Richard E. Rauh Conservatory, Lacey stood right where you’re sitting tonight, surrounded by hopeful “PMT Kids” imagining and dreaming of how amazing it would be for Pittsburgh Musical Theater to make this space their own. 17 years later, she is standing backstage at PMT’s very own Gargaro Theater waiting to grace the stage as the only female lead in this ground breaking and gender bending production! Formerly known as Larissa Overholt, Lacey Petrucci is a local artist who has studied, worked and played in and all around the Pittsburgh “Neighborhood” professionally for the past 18 years. Lacey was notably mentioned in The Post’s “Best of Pittsburgh Theater” for her portrayal of Ariel in PMT’s 2015 production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid and returned to the title role this past March 2018. She earned her Bachelor of Arts from Point Park University in 2007 and found her other half that same year during PMT’s production of Footloose (Rusty).

Lacey is proud to have grown in a city that celebrates art and fights for love. Pittsburgh thrives with a broken but beating heart that can be mended with art that reminds us that we’re all different and yet so very much the same. Art like this! We risk our lives to keep art alive for it is art that keeps us living. “Lift up your hands!”
