Cathi is honored to work with RCS again, and becoming intimately familiar with this very powerful but lesser known Shakespeare play has been both a bonus and a real joy. A resident of Huntsville since 2006, she most recently performed as Duchess Frederick and Adam (now a favorite role) in RCS's production of "As You Like It". Cathi has performed with community theatres in Georgia, N. Carolina, and elsewhere in Alabama, and has recently begun branching out into film. She would like to thank director Mandy Hughes for this terrific opportunity to play and to grow, the rest of the cast and crew for sharing their talents and working REALLY hard (take an extra bow, Ryan McKannon), and of course her very supportive husband and family (what were their names again?)
