Kari is so excited to be finished with school and ready to take on the real world of musical theatre! A Vermont native, favorite VT theatre credits include Chava in “Fiddler on the Roof” with Lyric Theatre, and Bebe in “A Chorus Line” and Shelley in “Bat Boy” with the Stowe Theatre Guild. Kari studied musical theatre at Circle in the Square Theatre School the summer of 2007 before preparing for her college auditions.
She was accepted early decision into CAP21, the musical theatre studio of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, where she earned her BFA in Drama in 3 and a half years. At NYU, Kari played Cordelia in “Falsettos” and after the CAP21 Winter 2012 Showcase, she signed with Cyd Levin and Associates.
Recent credits include Lydia in a reading of a new musical, “Tripping”, by Alex Gemignani and Keith Reddin, and Britt in Vital Theatre’s “Stinky Kids”, which won the Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best Family Musical! This summer (2012), Kari will play Gertrude McFuzz in La Comedia Dinner Theatre’s “Seussical” the Musical.
