Originally from Wisconsin, Kate Booth is now a Chicago based actor, combatant, choreographer, and coach who revels in theatre that comes with a challenge: heightened text, physically demanding roles, and outdoor performance are her favorites.
Previous fight direction credits include Head Over Heels with Kokandy Productions, Below the Belt produced by HONDU4U Productions, assisting Maureen Yasko on the fights for Babes with Blades' production Women of 4G, and assisting Geoff Coates with the fight direction for Oak Park Festival Theatre's The Fair Maid of the West , two summers for By the Sword, the street and stage fighting ensemble at the Bristol Renaissance Faire, as well as collaboration on They Fight, an original show written by the company of To the Point, of which she is a founding member.
You can also catch Kate clowning around with The Conspirators in Chicago, or listen to her previous work in the radio serials produced by Locked Into Vacancy Entertainment (Free podcasts on iTunes!)... She is also an Ensemblez member with Imaginez Ensemblez. Kate holds a B.F.A. in performance with an emphasis in acting from Northern Illinois University, which included a study abroad semester with the Moscow Art Theatre School.
Kate is one of the loyal "Kevins" (teaching assistants) to Fight Master Chuck Coyl at The Actors Gymnasium in Evanston, IL.
Currently, Kate is preparing to play the role of Detective Bertowski in Accidental Death of a Black Motorist with The Conspirators , opening 10/25/2019. She will be assisting both FM Chuck Coyl and CT Dave Gonzalez with SPT classes during the fall of 2019 as well.
