Arts & Culture: Katie Keaton takes the stage
Alumna Katie Keaton, ’16, embraced her undergraduate experience as a theatre major with a double minor in dance and business management. For Keaton, immersing herself in the performing arts at UMaine — both onstage and backstage — made her happy. The Caribou, Maine native was deeply involved in various UMaine clubs and organizations. She was a teaching assistant for the hip hop dance class; president of the Hip Hop Club; president of the UMaine chapter of Alpha Psi Omega; co-founder of the Celtic Club; production stage manager for the SPA fundraiser “Astonishing!,”; dance captain for the spring 2016 performance of “Urinetown”; and she performed in numerous dance showcases. Keaton also was a stagehand for the Collins Center for the Arts and filled a number of roles with the SPA including set design and production. Her choreography was featured in the Spring presentation of Mark Hollmann’s satirical comedy “Urinetown: The Musical,” at the Hauck Auditorium.
