Kate Fraser

company 2013


Named after the bonny Kate of Kate Hall, this Kate, London-born and Adelaide-raised, grew up with a love of dancing and acting, but wondered whether she was destined to play men after attending an all-girls school. On leaving, she promptly grew her hair long, formed a production company with some friends and performed her first female lead as ‘Vicki’ in Long Gone Lonesome Cowgirls (Adelaide Fringe). Following a successful season in Steve Martin’s Underpants (thankfully he wasn’t in them at the time), Kate was lucky enough to win a Simon Slade Memorial Award for emerging talent. At ACA, Kate has enjoyed exploring gutsy female characters, including ‘Natasha’ in Three Sisters and ‘Lady Macbeth’.
