The Central Oregon theater community is mourning the loss of a great director and actor. Pat Kmiec died of a massive heart attack Wednesday night. He was directing the upcoming production of "Gina Galdi and Guest" at Second Street Theatre. The playwright of the show, Cricket Daniel says Pat will be missed: “He was just almost childlike. He just loved the theater; he loved actors. He was an actor. We were in a show together at Second Street called "Tuna Christmas." He was just a wonderful, sweet man who loved the theater; it was his life.” Kmiec was born and raised in Chicago, and had lived in Bend for about 14 years. His latest show will go on, in his honor. One of the actors will direct the show.
