Katie Pritchard »
West End Actress, Musician and snazzy idiot, Katie Pritchard, is off on an adventure in this tidal wave of Sketchy, Charactery, Musical Comedy fun … Like the most watery of weather conditions, Pritchard is washing over the surf boards of comedy, crashing into the sandbanks of genre and dropping a sturdy wave onto the beach house of musicality.
Join Katie Pritchard as she takes you on a whirlwind magical mystery tour around the inner workings of her brain, as she showcases a few of her many hidden talents. Katie is a Musician (she is proficient on 13 different instruments, including the very tricky Shakey Egg), crafter (she makes all of her own costumes), lunger (she ran three marathons, don't you know? This, apparently, makes you excellent at lunging...or so she says), insert more cool things here, and you may even get a sneaky peek at her acting abilities as she performs death-defying feats of actory.
WARNING: Show may contain snazziness. WINNER Hilarity Bites, FINALIST Musical Comedy Awards, RUNNER UP Max Turner Prize
