Katharine Levy joined Purple Dreams after auditioning for ‘Persona’ in 2010. She was cast in the silent role of Amy, a character who turns out to be more than she appears. Fitting well with the cast, she was asked to return for the much more vocal character of Verity Sharp, an outspoken goth, in ‘All Kinds Of Awkward’. As the group progress, Katharine now takes on the role of Senior Production Assistant, as well as continuing with her performing duties. Katharine has shone in the touring productions as Eve in 'Silent Echo' and Bernie in 'Kissing Angels' - but it was in a return to playing Verity in 'Don't Tell Jane!' that has picked her up an award for Best Actress 2012!
Taking roles in other local groups, Katharine has appeared on stage in many roles in such productions as ‘The Darling Buds of May’, ‘The Crucible’, ‘The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe’ & ‘Billy Liar’. As well as appearing on stage, Katharine has helped backstage as a production assistant for ‘The Secret Diary Of Adrian Mole Aged 13 ¾’, ‘The History Boys’, and ‘High School Musical 2’.
