Mimi Sagadin began her acting career in Chicago during the 90’s and studied improv at The Players Workshop of the Second City. It was then that she felt God’s call to be His Ambassador in the arts, and to reclaim film for the glory of Jesus Christ.
She’s performed children’s shows on the infamous main stage of The Second City, co-founded the improv troupe, Mission IMPROVable, and has been an active ensemble member of numerous troupes for the past 20 years.
Sagadin has acted on several stages throughout the Windy City and in the spring of 2010, she was cast in Provision Theater’s production of the Jeff nominated and World Premiere play, “The Hiding Place.”
That same year she was privileged to work with Vince Vaughn, Kevin James and director Ron Howard in The Dilemma. That same week, she had the honor of portraying Holocaust survivior and Christian giant, Corrie ten Boom in “Return to the Hiding Place.” A life-changing role and gift from God.
As an actress she has also worked directly with Emma Thompson, Will Ferrell, Dustin Hoffman, Queen Latifah, Marc Forster, Katherine Heigl, Kurtwood Smith, Lisa Ann Walters, and John Rhys-Davies in “Return to the Hiding Place” which will be released nationally late 2013.
