KATY BLAKE  |  ACTOR

Katy has been singing and dancing since she was four years old, when she debuted as "€œChild #2" in The Elixir of Love, an opera in which both her mother and father performed – and she's been hooked ever since. She is getting ready to start rehearsals for the new Off-Broadway show Sweetee that will have a limited run at the Signature Theatre on Theatre Row in NYC!  The show is by Gail Kriegel and is being directed by the legendary Pat Birch.  Katy has played Grizabella in CATS at Theatre by the Sea in Rhode Island and at North Shore Music Theatre in Massachusetts. She created the role of Jesse in the Off-Broadway NYMF production of Greenwood and originated the role of Pam in the pre-New York tryout of The Last Smoker In America, which then transferred Off-Broadway. Audiences around the country have seen her singing and dancing to ABBA music in the national tour of Mamma Mia. Before that, she was at the Pasadena Playhouse creating the role of Sirocco in the world premiere of Mask, directed by Tony Award winner Richard Maltby, Jr., written by Oscar winner Anna Hamilton-Phelan, and with music by Grammy winners Barry Mann and Cynthia Weill. She performed with Reba McEntire in the Hollywood Bowl production of South Pacific, and was in the world premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Whistle Down the Wind. Katy played the title role of Eva in the 20th anniversary production of Evita and played Christine in the San Francisco Company of The Phantom of the Opera. Katy has also been working on writing her own musical - Storming Heaven: the Musical.  Click on the title link to learn more.
