HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY J by Nick Green 

 

“Patricia Cerra’s Megan provides a needed semblance of normalcy and pertinent observation – but even [Megan] has issues. Happy Birthday Baby J unpacks a wealth of emotions and is both absorbing and compelling.”

     - Colin MacClean, Gigcity 

 

“Cerra delivers an understated but impactful performance, getting quietly drunk and making occasional derisive comments until the climax of the show, when she steals the spotlight from Louise and Patrick for a few moments to deliver the play’s major twist.”

     - Mel Priestly, melpriestly.ca

THE MOUNTAINTOP by Katori Hall 

 

“Patricia Cerra of Edmonton plays Camae, the maid. These two give exceptional performances, perhaps the most emotionally powerful performances I’ve seen in theatre.”

 

“I had the sense we in the audience were being hit by an emotional tsunami. Someone near me wept for the last half hour. The Mountaintop wasn’t easy for me to see, but days later, I’m still processing its impact. Even more remarkably, that emotional impact seemed just as great for the actors.”

     - Strathmore Times

 

“From the very moment Ray Strachan (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.) and Patricia Cerra (Camae) walked on to the Rosebud Theatre stage and spoke their first lines, I knew I was going to enjoy the show.”

 

“Cerra and Strachan have great chemistry on stage and their performance is flawless. Cerra is an amazing actor … I was somewhat transfixed by Cerra’s demeanour throughout."

 

“This has to be my favourite show put on by Rosebud Theatre and one I would easily sit through again.”

     - Kulture Shake

 

“Cerra also has a powerful, wrenching speech about her own life and death. All the artifice Camae created for herself disappears and we see the confused, frightened, battered young woman she really was.” 

 

“Cerra’s Camae is a bundle of barely contained energy and she has a smile that lights up the stage.” 

     - Louis B. Hobson, The Calgary Herald 

 

“The play is an 80 minute existential journey driven by two amazing and award winning leads”. 

“Patricia was electric, especially during her “preach/rap” moment.” 

     - The Chestermere Anchor City News

TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA

by William Shakespeare

“Of the women of the play, Cerra’s Silvia is a spitfire, a portrait of exasperation at unwanted male advances. And she rejects Proteus’s increasingly gross advances with stinging rebukes at his faithless treachery.”  

- Liz Nicholls, 12th night

MISS TEEN by Michele Riml

 

Patricia Cerra as Dusty is excellent

     - Liane Faulder, Edmonton journal

 

Cerra, a skilled comic actor, steps up and attacks with gusto on pink stilettos (costume designer: Leona Brausen) and the kind of carnivorous smile that should terrify the rabbity. 

     - Liz Nicholls, 12th night

THE SILVER ARROW: THE UNTOLD STORY OF ROBIN HOOD by Mieko Ouchi

 

“Patricia Cerra (as Scarlet) is as fiery as the last time I saw her on stage in Theatre Network’s Gordon"

- Jenna Marynowski, After the House Lights

I HEARD ABOUT YOUR MURDER

by Stewart Lemoine

… Cerra as a cool, noncommittal professional dislodged from her usual calm into improvising lies she herself finds outlandish, turn in sharp intriguing performances.

     - Liz Nicholls, 12th night

SOLICITING TEMPTATION by Erin Shields

 

“That’s where this Sage Theatre production excels. It’s riveting watching Cerra and Overall take and give over control.” 

 

“Kudos to both Cerra and Overall for the way they handle the play’s final twist. They make it so real you could feel the opening night audience getting a bit on edge wondering just how much we were going to witness.”

- Louis B. Hobson, Calgary Herald 

 

“When she finally speaks, amazingly it’s perfect English, delivered fiercely by Patricia Cerra.”

“Cerra, a resourceful young actor, has the challenge of sustaining the sardonic attack mode, while hinting of secret sorrows beneath.” 

- Liz Nicholls, 12th night

 

“The intermissionless, 90-minute two-hander benefits from Jason Mehmel’s well-paced direction and two fine performances from Patricia Cerra and Mattie Overall.”

- Colin MacLean, GigCity

GORDON by Morris Panych

 

“As Deirdre, Patricia Cerra transforms into a girl barely out of high school whose anxiety and consideration of the tough choices in front of her – not just whether to have the baby, but about who she is going to become – is revealed behind her tough girl facade.”

- Jenna Marynowski, After the House Lights 

 

“Cerra as the much-abused Deirdre manages a blend of the surly, the fierce, and the innocent with a gravitas that’s perfectly judged.”

- Liz Nicholls, Edmonton journal 

 

“Cerra ably gives us a Deirdre as a sad, lost soul.”

- Colin MacLean, Gigcity
