“Being a triple threat, or what I like to say ‘someone who loves to work in different areas’, means that I’m also a vocalist.
I have worked as a lead vocalist with a number of cover bands. I’ve also worked as a backup singer/dancer for established cabaret artists such as in Catherine Alcorn’s The Divine Miss Bette Show (Aus and USA) and SMA’s corporate group The Diamonds. This has given me the opportunity to work interstate in Australia and as a guest entertainer on major cruise ships.”
One of Kat’s vocal highlights was to sing at the prestigious and highly anticipated Carols by Candlelight in Australia. She performed with fellow Here Come The Habibs star, Georgia Flood. Together, the pair sang “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, musically directed by John Foreman.
Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight is the largest of its kind in Australia and has been held annually at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl in the King’s Domain Gardens in Melbourne on Christmas Eve since 1938.
It is televised to over 2 million people across Australia and is staple viewing for Australian families on a yearly basis.
Other vocal guests that evening were Delta Goodrem, Marina Prior, Tim Campbell and many more!
Kat was in the touring production of Jersey Boys the musical (Francine and others) and Australian Tour of Hairspray the musical (U/S Dynamites). This took her all over Australia and New Zealand.
Other notable productions to add to the mix include Fame! The Musical (Carmen Diaz), Bring It On: The Musical (Danielle), Spring Awakening (Martha), Pippin at Sidetrack Theatre, Short and Sweet, Jungle Bungle and Rev It Up (Produced by Echelon).
Below is a clip of Kat singing “My Boyfriends Back” from Jersey Boys the musical with fellow cast members Lisa Adam and Michelle MacDonald (Smitheram).
The Divine Miss Bette
In early 2018, Kat was thrilled to tour the USA with powerhouse Catherine Alcorn and her successful cabaret: The Divine Miss Bette. The show performed to sold-out venues in Arizona and Los Angeles to name a few!
