Katie-McKee

Katie McKee

Swing

Originally hailing from Brisbane, Katie found her passion for performing at a young age. She relished in the dramatic, playing crazy old women, witches, drunken whores and evil queens.

Katie graduated from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts with a Bachelor of Arts (Music Theatre). Her WAAPA highlights included Mrs Lovett in Sweeney Todd, The Young Wife in Hello Again, West Side Story, Blood Brothers and Oklahoma! with Jill Perryman.

Since graduating, Katie has performed in numerous productions including playing Nancy in Oliver! (Packemin Productions), My Fair Lady (Opera Australia), the Australian premiere of Floyd Collins (Meredith Shaw Productions) and Transport (New Musicals Australia) written by Thomas Keneally and Larry Kirwan. Katie was seen most recently in the Australasian production of Wicked (GFO), where she understudied and performed the role of Madame Morrible on many occasions.

In 2010 Katie wrote, produced and performed her one woman cabaret, Identity Crisis, which then went on to play a sold-out season at the Sydney Fringe Festival. Katie also had the opportunity to perform Swing Time With The Andrews Sisters at the world renowned Adelaide Cabaret Festival in 2012.

As well as performing, Katie is a passionate project leader for WotOpera, an organisation aimed at inspiring young people to unlock their creativity and get involved in the arts.

Katie is thrilled to be a part of The Sound of Music and would like to thank her family, friends and especially her husband, Austin, for their incredible love and support.
