  |  Published: Jun 12th 2015

Katie Thomas (KT) was born in Wendover.

An avid performer from a young age Chief Munchkin (John Hampden); Eliza Doolittle –My Fair Lady ( Wendover Junior School). Other local performances included Annie; Squealer in Animal Farm; Dorothy in Wizard of Oz to name but a few. KT after completing 7 years at AHS went on to be Head Girl at the oldest theatre school in the world The Italia Conti Academy in London. 

Coming from a dance/ music family background KT taught regularly from a young age and then also started up The Musical Kidz Company when only 17yrs old. She then developed this side of the business adding an agency on in 2007 and continually likes to push and motivate all her students into getting the most from their training with her whether it’s for hobby or career purposes. KT is also the Pantomime Juvenile Co-ordinator for Aylesbury Waterside and auditions all the children each year for each Panto season. KT  worked professionally in Calamity Jane (Gatehouse Theatre), Barbra Streisand in You Don’t Bring Me Flowers (Tour), Dancer (Aviva Advert) and appeared in various commercials and other performances.

KT then moved to the USA in 2013 to continue developing her knowledge and love for Theatre and TV as she gained a scholarship at the prestigious New York Film Academy to study on their intensive 2 year musical theatre & film course. Since leaving Wendover KT has been building up a very impressive range of overseas credits including playing the lead in a movie musical called One Door Opens and Elizabeth Bennett in a voiceover of Pride and Prejudice. KT choreographed and starred in a documentary about Tap and filmed at landmark places such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park and Times Square. KT played the Adult Female in Spring Awakening the Musical in the Off Broadway ATA theatre. This role was particularly challenging as it consists of playing 7 different characters some changes in under 30secs.

KT has always had a passion for the industry and has a wide background in a variety of abilities she uses. For example, she has just produced a Short feature film called Najima with Audacity Innovative now showing at festivals both stateside and across the globe. In June/July she will be acting and playing the lead in a film about Cerebral Palsy so is heavily researching and learning new things each day.

In addition, KT has been invited to teach a series of workshops to an American High School in Delaware. She is really looking forward to having her first proper American High School visit – to see if it really is how films depict it!

She simply never seems to stop and with her range of performing, producing, teaching and choreography credits building up she is certainly incredibly gifted and someone up and coming to watch in the USA who grew up in Wendover.
