MEET THE ARTISTS
Cate Hayman graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with her BFA in Drama in 2020. She was born in South Australia, grew up in Mill Valley, and has been living in New York City full time since January pursuing her career. While doing so, she has been modeling and fulfilling the stereotype of an unemployed actress by working in a restaurant!! WAHOO! This all being said, she is utterly thrilled to be back with Moon for a night!
She made her 42nd Moon debut in a virtual Cabaret last September. Some Bay area credits include her role as Florence in Chess: In Concert (42nd Street Moon), Songs for a New World (San Francisco Playhouse), and Sally Bowles in Cabaret (San Francisco Playhouse), where she won both the TBA and Critics Choice award for her work. While at Carnegie Mellon, some roles included The Witch in Into the Woods, the Nurse in Romeo and Juliet, and Fraulein Kost in Cabaret. Other than theatre, Cate is extremely passionate about food, dogs, and traveling! A very special thanks to Daren Carollo, Dwight Okamura, and Matt Berzon for helping me with the show!
