Kate Black-Spence is so grateful to be working on RASTUS AND HATTIE with such a talented group of people. In such unprecedented times, it has been a gift to be able to come together and still make meaningful art. This is Kate’s first time working with 16th Street Theatre. She has previously been seen on Chicago stages with BoHo Theatre (Three Days of Rain), Stage Left Theatre (Coward, Warped, Rabbit, What of the Night?), Cor Theatre (Love and Human Remains), and Prop Thtr (Neverland)- where she is currently an Artistic Associate. When she’s not acting she’s writing her own plays, (“Ghosts of Whitechapel,” “Static Space” available on NPX) and is currently looking forward to a Quarantine-friendly film project which should be filming this fall. She sends her thanks to Dustin for working around her remote rehearsal schedules with grace, and her amazing mom, because she always thanks her mom.
