Cap T’s Amazing Cast Set to Tackle Imminent Apocalypse

1 May 2012

It may be a sign that the end is near when we are able to assemble such an amazingly talented cast like we have for our upcoming production of boom by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb.  We have gathered two of your favorite austin actors as well as a ridiculously talented recent Austin transplant. We have coaxed the amazing Katherine Catmull back onstage with Capital T for the first time since she was buried up to her waist in a mound of sand in HAPPY DAYS which she was recognized as the Best Actress in town by the B Iden Payne Awards. We are also thrilled that Brad Price is back onstage for Cap T.  Last year Brad took us to a place where centaurs are real in HUNTER GATHERERS playing Tom which earned him a B Iden Payne Nomination for Best Supporting Actor.  We also can’t wait to introduce to Austin a recent transplant from New Mexico and a kick ass actor,  Katy Taylor.  We are sure you will see her onstage in Austin after boom has closed (in fact she has already been cast in Hyde Park Theatre’s upcoming MIDDLETOWN by Will Eno).   Read all about these talented people then get your tickets to the show!


Jo – Katy Taylor

Katy is elated to make her Austin stage debut with Capital T’s production of boom. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, she is most recently a transplant from Las Cruces, New Mexico where she served as an AmeriCorp volunteer over the last two years teaching theatre at Alma d’arte, an arts integration charter high school. Her time in the desert also afforded her the opportunity to work under the direction of Mark Medoff as Iris in THE IRIS INCIDENT and Nicole in SANDPIPER. Additionally, she’s appeared as Rosalind in AS YOU LIKE IT, First Witch in MACBETH, and Evelyn in THE SHAPE OF THINGS. Directing credits include Patricia Loughrey’s DEAR HARVEY (Rio Grande Theatre) and Nicky Silver’s FREE WILL AND WANTON LUST (Baldwin-Wallace College). Katy has also worked as a stage manager for American Place Theatre, PlayhouseSquare, and Project in Motion.  Katy will be appearing in Hyde Park Theatre’s MIDDLETOWN by Will Eno in September.

Jules – Brad Price

Boom marks Brad’s second appearance  with Capital T.  It also marks his second appearance in a Peter Sinn Nachtrieb play as he played Tom in Last Fall’s HUNTER GATHERERS (B Iden Payne Nomination Outstanding Supporting Actor). He is a recent transplant from Los Angeles where he was/is co-founder and ensemble member of Furious Theatre Company. Acting credits with Furious include: THE PAIN AND THE ITCH (West Coast Premiere), GRACE (West Coast Premiere), THE SHAPE OF THINGS (L.A.
