About Me

Cate is a teacher, actor, and director. She continues to build and study the craft of acting and loves sharing her passion for the work with new and developing artists.

Cate believes in the power of lifelong learning. She loves the balance of teaching and research, theory and practice-that life as a teaching artist provides. Recently Cate is expanding her own practice to include a deeper focus on the art of solo performance in addition to delving more deeply into her own pedagogy and its origins.

With special interests in Shakespeare, text analysis, vocal work, and using the physical and psychological to create character, Cate is excited to continue pursuing her passion for theatre through both artistry and pedagogy.
