Kat Ebaugh is an actor, dancer, performer and yoga instructor. In addition to performing with Stage 2 Improv troupe, she has appeared in numerous stage productions at The Naples Players, including TNP’s virtual production of Comedy Night on August 22, 2020 as well as in the roles of Kitty in The Drowsy Chaperone (2014),  Tessi Tura in Gypsy (2014) and Ulla in The Producers (2013)(for which she received rave reviews from Chris Silk, who said that Kat brought a Marilyn-Monroe-singing-to-JFK-sexpot vibe to her role as she vamped, twirled and swallowed “her guttural Swedish consonants with ease” with her flirty rendition of “That Face” proving to be a highlight of the show).

Ebaugh has also performed on stage and in film for Laboratory Theater. There, her credits include Kay O’Connell’s outdoor horror Projekt Grotesquerie, The Little Mermaid in Lab Theater’s filmed production of Dennis Giacino’s Off-Broadway smash Disenchanted: A New Musical Comedy [Stay-At-Home Version] and a woman trapped between parallel universes in Laura Lorusso’s short film Multiverse Anomaly for the 2021 Lab Theater 24-Hour Screenwriting Project.

A veteran burlesque performer, Kat has not only taught burlesque at TNP (focusing not just on the art but the origins of burlesque and how it was originally rooted in comedy and political satire) but how to dance in heels as well.

“The older I get,” muses Kat, “the more I realize being a powerful women is less about being good looking and popular, but being strong and empowering because that’s what makes a women powerful and sexy.”

“As a performer it goes the same way,” Kat adds. “Be you, be strong, be provocative and that will be the thing that makes you sexy, not the glitter, feathers or big hair.”

When she’s not performing, Kat is working on a degree in elementary education with an emphasis on early education and music and movement with children.

Kat appears next appears in the ensemble of A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder for The Naples Players.
