The talent pool runs deep in this production starting with both young and grown up Violet. Katelyn Katz never took a back seat to anyone on stage … At thirteen she has the poise and voice to become whatever she chooses.

Katelyn Katz … plays the 13-year-old Violet with such radiant grace that big things are hereby expected in her future.

Long Way to Midnight:

The Fringe staging was … well-rehearsed by a cast of musical pros, including Victoria Patton as Gail, Rick Rutti as Michael, Kathy Sanders as Donna, M. Susan Peck as Fanny and the fiercely talented Katelyn Katz, 12, as Sarah.

[Katelyn] is the sharpest actress of the bunch and can sing.

To Kill a Mockingbird:

12-year-old Katelyn Katz perfectly embodies Scout’s precociousness and guilelessness.

— Pam Kragen, Union Tribune

Nalbandian, Katz and Matthew Mohler as Dill get wide berths in their roles as—well—kids. They’re an attractive, exceedingly hardworking trio, and their comprehension and sense of nuance is as thorough as any of the adults’.

— Martin Jones Westlin, San Diego Story

As Scout and Jem, Katelyn Katz and Dylan Nalbandian are wonderful.

The Sound of Music:

The von Trapp children (Kelly Prendergast, Jonas McMullen, Annie Buckley, Luke Babbitt, Katelyn Katz, Hourie Klijian and Garbriella Dimmick) shine, especially in “The Lonely Goatherd.”

— Pam Kragen, Union Tribune

And all those in between are equally fabulous: Jonas McMullen as Friedrich, Annie Buckley as Louisa, Luke Babbitt as Kurt, Katelyn Katz as Brigitta and Hourie Klijian as Marta. Congratulations all around.
