Working on Lord of the Flies felt like a once in a lifetime opportunity.  Kate's vision was so innovative, the rehearsal space was always safe, while the cast was still pushed to explore and grow as much as possible.  I hope someday to be as daring, inventive, and creative of an artist as Kate is.

- Adelaide, BFA & Assistant Director

Kate's class made me more aware of my body and made me a more curious artist. I questioned myself and my world in that class. I also discovered the importance of valuing and understanding my emotions. This was also the first time I got Shakespeare in my bones which was a big turning point for my classical work.
