Katie Hudson’s passion for theatre started at a young age performing with local theatres such as Growing Stage, Pickwick Players, and Sterling Playmakers. During her young adult career, she studied Musical Theatre at an advanced level and, by her senior year in high school, taught her first class as a Teacher’s Aid for a freshman Basic Acting class. During her collegiate years, she performed in main stage shows such as Medea, Romeo and Juliet, Ice Wolf, Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Speed of Darkness. She also followed the path of teaching by directing studio shows such as Bringing All Back Home, Sight Unseen, and Reckless. Katie graduated from Radford University with her Bachelor’s degree in Theatre with a focus in both Performance and Directing. Katie has worked as a Stage Manager, Director of a Theatre Department and as a Director of an After-School Program. With a firm belief that everyone is a singer and everyone is an actor, Katie strives to find pieces that both fit the need of the individual student’s learning process and challenge them to take their skills to the next level yet give them the confidence they need to push them farther.
