Senior Katie McCoy is continuing The King’s Academy’s long-standing tradition of placing its graduating seniors in the top collegiate acting programs across the United States. Katie has been accepted into the BFA Acting Program at the highly esteemed Marymount Manhattan College. US News and World Report listed the acting program of Marymount Manhattan College in the top 10 programs in the country. Katie was accepted into this highly competitive program after auditioning live in Manhattan with over 1,700 graduating seniors across the country. Katie will follow in the footsteps of some outstanding Marymount alumni such as: Tony nominated actress, Annaleigh Ashford of Broadway’s Legally Blonde and Wicked, Ta’Rea Campbell of Broadway’s Lion King, Aida and Book of Mormon, Adam Chanler-Berat of Broadway’s Next to Normal and Peter and the Star Catcher, Alexander Skarsgard of HBO’s True Blood, Melissa Benoist of Fox’s Glee, and many more. The King’s Academy alumnus Brandon Beynon ‘06 graduated from Marymount’s acting program in 2010, and alumna Alex Patee ‘12 is presently studying in the Technical Theatre program at Marymount.
Katie has been seen on The King’s Academy’s main stage and Black Box Theatre playing principal roles in Steel Magnolias, My Fair Lady, and most recently in this year’s black box production of Little Women. We congratulate Katie McCoy for representing The King’s Academy in her future endeavors at one of the best schools in the country.
