Kathleen Barney


Southwest Florida theater veteran Kathleen Barney makes her Naples Players debut in the role of local spiritualist and medium Madame Arcati in Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit. The seer is no fraud, and what starts out as a parlor game done as research for novelist Charles Condomine’s new book gets very, very real when she conjures his late wife Elvira from the other side. One teeny tiny little problem. Elvira stays and Madame Arcati can’t quite figure out how to send her back!

Among Kathleen’s stage credits are Patty in Walter Cronkite Is Dead, Aida in Over The River and Through The Woods and Martha in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, all for The Studio Players, along with Caroline in Take Five, Carol in The Last Romance, various roles in Love Loss and What I Wore, Ginger in Becky’s New Car, Carmen in Cookin with Gus and Truvy in Steel Magnolias for The Marco Players (where she has been performing for seven years). Other credits include 2 national commercials, two years in the Vagina Monologues at the Norris Center and Love Letters with Theatre Experience and ETC with The Naples Players.
