KATE PONZIO

Actor.  Singer.  Darn good mover.

 

ABOUT

An Ohio native, Kate graduated from the musical theatre department of Ball State University, home of David Letterman and front lawn cornhole tournaments, and brought her sarcastic commentary and lack of parallel parking skills to sunny SoCal.  


Previously a BroadwayWorld Los Angeles nominee due to her egotistically titled co-headlining cabaret The Pleasure is Yours (Sterling's Upstairs), local credits also include Meet Me in St Louis (Cabrillo Music Theatre), Kiss Me, Kate (Glendale Centre Theatre), CATS for Cats: A Celebrity Concert (with Fred Willard) at the historic Orpheum Theatre and most recently in the Encore Award Winning musical Save Me A Spot! (Hollywood Fringe Festival), Sister Robert Anne in Nunsense (Glendale Centre Theatre) and as Betty Jean in The Marvelous Wonderettes (Sierra Madre Playhouse, Crown City Theatre and GCT).


No stranger to the stage, Kate was last seen in her shower singing Elphaba from Wicked, a part that's, according to her neighbors, most definitely out of her range.

THANK YOU AND GOODNIGHT...

July 7, 2018

After three separate productions - Sierra Madre Playhouse, Crown City Theatre and Glendale Centre Theatre - spanning 12 of the last 14 months, my time as Betty Jean in "The Marvelous Wonderettes" has come to an end.  Performing in this show has been simply a dream - it's exhausting, vocal demand is challenging, and with constant audience interaction, you can never coast - and I loved it.  Thank you to all the incredible audiences over the year+, many of whom came to see my beloved Cindy Lou aka Kelsey Boze and me for repeat visits along the journey.  

"Gee, but it's funny...how the hours seem to go by so fast.  I only hope that this time won't be the last.  We hope to see you again..." - Betty Jean Reynolds

KATE PERFORMS AT "A LITTLE NEW MUSIC" AT CATALINA JAZZ CLUB

March, 8 2018

Come celebrate new musical theatre works as Clayton Farris and I revisit a song from the sold-out Hollywood Fringe Festival hit "Save Me a Spot - A New Musical" for A Little New Music's latest edition at the Catalina Jazz Club!  The last time I was onstage at ALNM, I was "White Girl Wasted" in ALNM #8.  Typecasting, I know...
