Tracey N. Bonner 

Tracey Bonner is a native of Murfreesboro, TN. She is thrilled and empowered to be working alongside Co-Host, Zack Kirk, on this very important podcast movement that is the Three Plus One!

Bonner holds a B.S. in Speech Communication and Theatre from Tennessee State University, in Nashville, TN. She also holds an MFA in Acting from The Theatre School at DePaul University, in Chicago, IL. Bonner later went on to study improv at The Second City in Chicago where she was a member of their Brown Co. production ensemble. Bonner’s greatest theatrical accomplishment has been to be a proud Ensemble Member of Congo Square Theatre Company, since 2009. She believes the sustainability of black theatre is vital to the landscape of American theatre and institutions like Congo Square Theatre are important for artists of color to have a home where they can create, thrive, and have complete autonomy to tell their stories.
