Katherine Washington

Katherine Washington is certainty no stranger to the stage! A North Carolina native, she stems from a family of seasoned performers. Favorite credits include Recorded in Hollywood (Clementine, The Kirk Douglas), Bare: A Rock Musical (Los Angeles revival/The Hayworth), The Wedding Singer (Tina Turner/Musical Theatre West), Tarzan (Kala, El Portal), Aida (Aida/The Box Theatre), Memphis (Felicia u/s /Cabrillo Music Theatre), Little Shop of Horrors (Ronnette/Glendale Centre Theatre), Cabaret (Fritzi/Inland Valley Rep), and Trixie in the premiere of the Ovation and NAACP Theatre award winning musical When Jazz Had the Blues.

When not performing in musicals, she can be found rocking out with her band Soul Rising, opening for Grammy Award winning artists like Macy Gray and Earth, Wind, and Fire’s Verdine White to name a few. Katherine also plays five musical instruments, the violin being her heart. She performed with The Fayetteville Symphony for years, and continues to teach privately. A graduate of The American Musical and Dramatic Academy (Los Angeles), she enjoys putting all of her artistic gifts to use in a city so filled with opportunity. “I finally found a home between the clicks of a metronome and the song.”
