Katharine Maness


Much Ado: Beatrice/Verges

Shrew: Katharina 

Katharine Maness (she/her) is a Vermont-born and bred actor, artistic director, and producer. After 12 years in NYC, she has returned home to establish SitW. Katharine is a proud and grateful graduate of The William Esper Studio’s Full Time Program, studying with David Newer, and was also invited into the studio’s alumni Shakespeare Intensive, taught by the late Bill Esper. Recently, Katharine participated in Red Bull Theater’s Shakespeare Intensive Master Class, with Louisa Proske, Chukwudi Iwuji, and Peter Francis James. Some favorite credits include: At the Gallery; Bachelorette; Sir Thomas More (staged reading). Borough Verbatim (short film); Van Money (short film); and the forthcoming Tamar Buys A Car (feature film). Katharine is ridiculously happy to be creating art right here at home with SitW, and can’t thank her family and friends enough for their never ending support.
