Catherine Purcell is a millennial actor, singer, writer, part-time job juggler currently working up and down the East Coast of America, primarily residing in Washington Heights, Manhattan. Catherine grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia and attended an all-girl's, Catholic high school, where her passion for performance was sparked and cultivated (also where she collected a bevy of hilarious stories centering on the misadventures of the Sisters of St Joseph and their teenage, female charges). She then went on to study music and drama at the collegiate level in Washington, DC and London, England and completed a college apprenticeship with the Shakespeare Theatre Company in DC; since graduating, she has been working with consistency on new and classic works alike in New York, Washington, and Philadelphia. She is equally passionate about all forms of theatre, but has a special interest in new works and re-imaginings of classical texts.
In her free time, Catherine enjoys music of the indie variety, coffee, Wes Anderson and Steven Spielberg films (any good film, really), dogs, sometimes children, dissecting Shakespeare, and collaborating with her friends on original material.
Fun facts: she is 54.4% English, she once won the Hamilton lottery, and she has never had a cavity.
