Katie Mitchell BIO

Katie Mitchell is a rose-wine loving performer, fitness professional, and mama with a Boston Terrier obsession! Her journey as a performer began in Florida at the Miami Conservatory of Ballet after her elementary school dance teacher told her mom: “with that child’s legs and beautiful feet, she needs to be dancing!” Thanks, Miss Bridgette! Katie later studied dance at New World School of the Arts and went on to Southern Methodist University, where she earned a BFA in Dance Performance as well as degrees in Math and Business. After college, she moved to New York City to pursue her passion for performing. Katie spent several years as the center Rockette, the tallest of the tall ladies, both on the road and in NYC. Some of her favorite theater credits include Sheila in A Chorus Line, Diana Dream/Dolores Dolores in On the Town, and Mona (better known as “Lipschitz”) and Liz (“Pop”) in Chicago the Musical (Broadway company). She also works as a fitness professional at various gyms and exercise studios across NYC and on Long Island and can be seen in many fitness videos. Katie loves this show and is honored to be a part of the cast!

Photos: First look at King Avenue Players' THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME

The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be 'Out There,' observes all of Paris revelling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful Romani woman, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the Roma – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all.
