About Katie Mack-Montenegro 

Katie is a theatre director, teacher, and writer living on the Central Coast of California.  She is currently in her second year as the Directing Intern for PCPA Theatrefest in Santa Maria, California.  Katie has a BA in Theatre from the University of West Florida and a certificate in Acting from the American Conservatory Theatre.

In the fall of 2010, Katie co-founded the Central Coast Chapter of NO SHAME Theatre.  NO SHAME Theatre is “a kind of ‘open mic’ for the theatre with only three basic rules--that the work be original, less than 5 minutes long, and not break any laws.”  No review, censorship, or rewrites.  It is an opportunity to encourage individuals to share their stories and their voices with the community, especially those who may not have another venue in which to do so.  NO SHAME asks artists to “Dare to fail!”

Katie’s career goal is to establish a theatre company that supports the past, present, and future generations of female artists.  She is also passionate about the creation of new works.
