Fond du Lac Community Theatre is pleased to announce that the 2020 Memorial Scholarship winner is Katherine Behlke.
Katherine attended Fond du Lac High School. She was active in the music and theatre program participating in Marching Band, Color Guard, Jazz Band, and the school plays and musicals. She also was a member of the National Honor Society and the Sexuality and Gender Equality Club.
Katherine has been involved with Fond du Lac Community Theatre for approximately nine years. She has worked behind the scenes on stage crews for Harvey, Beauty and the Beast, and Give My Regards to Broadway – and acted on stage in supporting roles and as part of the ensemble of shows including I Remember Mama, The Prisoner of Zenda, Peter Pan, and Sweeney Todd.
Katherine plans to attend UW-Milwaukee for a Mechanical Engineering major and Physics minor, and at some point plans to get her Masters in Mechnical Engineering. She hopes to someday work for Disney as an Imagineer designing rides, animatronics, and theming in the parks. And she hopes to find a local community theatre to be involved in wherever she goes.
Katherine is the daughter of Ron & Rhea Behlke of Fond du Lac. As the recipient of this year’s Memorial Scholarship, Katherine will receive the award at the Fond du Lac Community Theatre’s Annual Meeting on Tuesday, July 21 at 6:30pm at the Community Theatre building located at 250 W.
