Currently I'm a regular performer at Adam's Mystery Playhouse where we create comedy-improv in a murder mystery format. Recent shows include Who wants to Murder a Millionaire, Welcome to Murder Mortuary, Murder on Pirate Island, and Death for Dinner.

I toured internationally with a comedy-improv group, performing at U.S. military bases in Japan, Korea, Guam, Okinawa, Hawaii, Alaska, Germany, and England in 2005, 2006, and 2007.
In addition to being an actor and director, I've done make-up for films, including Gathering of Heroes from Vanguard Entertainment. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Gathering-of-Heroes-Legend-of-the-Seven-Sw...
My writing has appeared in literary journals including Foothills Magazine, The Orange Coast Review, Fast Forward Vol. 2, and Monkey Puzzle Press. Currently I’m working on a book-length creative non-fiction memoir.
I’ve performed in Denver and also in LA in small indie films and in several plays including Tennessee Williams’ Suddenly Last Summer, Edward Albee’s A Delicate Balance, Steve Martin’s Picasso at the Lapin Agile, and George Bernard Shaw’s Misalliance. I was honored by Out Front and Life on Capitol Hill (two Denver newspapers) as “Best Actress in a Comedy” for my work in GB Shaw’s “Misalliance.”
Wanting to bring together my experiences as a writer & as an actor, I directed some plays that I'd written, including The Martini Debacle, of which Variety critic Bob Bowes wrote, "The evening showed great promise, jump-started by actress-writer-director Katharyn Grant's 'Martini Debacle,' setting the tone for a well-written, contentious go-around. . .the climax was hilarious and sweet."
Directing for theater led me to write and direct short films, including Dave and Nadine, Cat’s Cradle, Synchronicity, The Accoutrement, and The Tao of Pez. My films have been screened on The Independant FIlm Channel (IFC), at BHFF in LA and Rome, Italy, at Starz film center, and at the Estes Park Film Festival. I'm currently working on (acting/directing/producing) a feature length film (working title "Carolina Blue"), which has been the hardest and most rewarding experience of my life. We are finishing up principle photography currently, and then going into post production.
