Kate Edwards is originally from Cleveland, Ohio and has been singing and dancing since before she can remember. She began formal training at the age of 10 where she performed regularly in theatres in the Cleveland and Akron-Canton area. These experiences ignited in her a love for the stage. And while she doesn’t remember making the conscious decision to become a professional entertainer, somehow she has always known it is what she was meant to do.
At 18, she moved to Pittsburgh to attend Point Park University’s Conservatory of Performing Arts where she received her degree in musical theatre. After graduation, Kate moved to New York and soon thereafter booked a job as a singer on a cruise ship. It was here that she discovered her passion for travel. After completing her first contract, she took a number of backpacking trips and continued to work in the cruise line industry where she was able to travel and perform all over the world.
In only five years, Kate visited over 30 different countries and 4 different continents. At the beginning of 2018, she made the decision to move back to New York to pursue a career on land. Kate’s experience working on cruise ships as well as her musical theatre training has molded her into a dynamic, versatile entertainer with the ability to perform a broad range of styles from pop/rock to classical musical theatre. It has also given her a solid technical foundation in singing, dancing, and acting which allows her to truly command the stage.
Her passion for performing and comfortableness on the stage make her a high-energy, larger than life entertainer. Kate is a fitness enthusiast and certified yoga instructor. In her free time, she enjoys eating anything sweet and watching dog videos.
