Kathryn directing Peter DeLaurier in Underneath the Lintel at Lantern Theater Company (2015). "This remounting of ...Lintel is, I think, the most present and specific work I've done in my forty-eight years in the profession. That is, in large part, due to KC. In her kind, relentless way she kept me constantly on task - finding and realizing circumstance; clarifying dramatic action; remaining consistently present and responsive to what is actually happening in the life of my character at each moment and consequently allowing each moment to be the unique and inevitable result of the character's history and what just happened in the instant before. The product of this joint effort was a performance that I feel was profoundly deeper and more detailed - much more painful to play (and consequently much funnier) - than the one for which I was awarded the Barrymore for Outstanding Actor twelve years ago." - Peter DeLaurier

"KC has an incredible ability to connect with me as an actor - she listens and tries to find the best way to convey to me what I need to do to improve the scene, the line, the intention. Each time we work together, it feels like her approach is unique to me - that she senses what I as an actor needs individually and gives me support and guidance in the way that feels specifically tailored to what is needed in that moment. She's an actor's director." - Charlotte Northeast

Complimentary to my work as a director, I have more than fifteen years’ experience as a theater educator of students at all levels: adult/professional, university, high school, and younger.

I love coaching actors on monologues and audition sides; I am enthusiastic about helping actors find their best, richest, most truthful work. I can help you choose monologues, pairs of monologues, or songs, and build a repertoire of audition pieces, whether for first time auditions or work meant to show range. To start, we’ll focus on clarity, stakes, and ease, incorporating your personal goals to help you deepen your craft and find audition confidence.

On relatively short notice, I can be available to work with you on audition sides, offering directorial perspective and aiding you in script analysis. You’ll enter auditions braver and more responsive to a director’s adjustments.

Send me a note on my              Contact page and we can        discuss rates and scheduling. 

Thanks!

"KC assesses a performers strengths and weaknesses masterfully.  She knows when to push and when to hold back.  She is not afraid of being wrong. She trusts herself and ,by extension, the actors she coaches.  She is my favorite director, a trusted collaborator, and dear friend." -Charlie DelMarcelle
