Rajané Katurah will join the Children’s Theatre Company (CTC) Acting Company.
Katurah relocated to Minnesota in 2017 when she accepted the offer to become one of the 2017-2018 performing apprentices and has most recently appeared in Park Square Theatre’s “Marie and Rosetta.” During her time as a CTC performing apprentice, she performed roles in “Dr. Seuss’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas,” “The Wiz,” and “Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax,” which was performed both at CTC as well as The Old Globe in San Diego. She joins as the fifth Acting Company member alongside Autumn Ness, Dean Holt, Gerald Drake, and Reed Sigmund.
“I am over-the-moon excited to become an Acting Company member at Children’s Theatre Company,” said Katurah. “I admire the current members so much and I’m humbled to join the ranks of such amazing artists. I hope to continue to grow, learn, be challenged, succeed, and stretch myself during this new chapter of my life. I ultimately hope to inspire children of color everywhere to dream big, and be grateful for each ‘No’ that prepares them for their ‘Yes.’”
“It is a true pleasure for all of us to welcome Rajané to our Acting Company,” said CTC Artistic Director Peter Brosius. “Rajané brings not only a wealth of talent, but also an incredible warmth and joy to every encounter. She is an actor of great depth and range and is passionate about creating extraordinary work. It was such a delight to have her as a Performing Apprentice and we are truly thrilled to now have her join our Acting Company.”
Children’s Theatre Company (CTC) is the nation’s largest theater for young people and serves a multigenerational audience. CTC is the only theater focused on young audiences to win a Tony Award for regional theater and is the only one in Minnesota to receive three Tony nominations (for its production of “A Year with Frog and Toad”).
