About The Teacher

      Mrs. Katie Hudson is an Ashburn, VA native having lived here since 1992. Her passion for theatre started at a young age performing with local theatres such as Growing Stage, Pickwick Players, and Sterling Playmakers. During her young adult career she studied Musical Theatre at an advanced level, and by her senior year in highschool- she taught her first class as a Teacher's Aid for a freshman Basic Acting class. During this class, she learned her passion for performing was matched by her passion for teaching. During her collegiate years she performed in Main Stage shows such as Medea, Romeo and Juliet, Ice Wolf, Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum and Speed of Darkness. She also followed the path of teaching by directing studio shows such as Bringing All Back Home, Sight Unseen, and Reckless. Katie graduated from Radford University with her Bachelor's degree in Theatre with a focus in both Performance and Directing.

        Immedeately upon graduation she moved back to Ashburn, where she worked with Fairfax Players as a Stage Manager for their production of "Into The Woods". Hoping to get her foot in the door with teaching, she also taught Stage Management at Fairfax Highschool during their Spring Performance in 2013. Immedeately after that Katie found a more permanent job with an after-school art program where she became the Director of the Theatre Department as well as Director of the After-school Program. It was there that Katie began teaching her first private students. During classes students had a one on one opprotunity to not only develop their skills, but get personal help in discovering songs and monologues that are fit to their personal voice. With a firm belief that everyone is a singer and everyone is an actor, Katie Hudson strives to find pieces that both fit the need of the individual students learning process and challenge them to take their skills to the next level yet give them the confidence they need to push them farther.
