    Kati is excited to co-direct the Bastrop Opera House's production of Disney's Newsies The Broadway Musical based on her long-time favorite movie! This actress at heart has always gravitated toward directing, especially in youth theatre. During her seven years at Bastrop Middle School, she directed 20 productions. She led her 7th and 8th graders to UIL glory, winning Outstanding Show five times. These days, Kati teaches Elementary Theatre at Calvary Episcopal School and at the Bastrop Opera House. Newsies is Kati's 7th show to direct at the opera house, and she will be at the helm of the Summer Drama Camp's Dr. Doolittle Jr. later this summer. So be on the lookout! Kati would like to thank the wonderful cast and crew of Newsies for their hard work, along with her dedicated co-director Lisa Holcomb.
