Katy Fitzpatrick, a native of Spokane, Washington, began acting in local children's theatre productions at age ten and hasn't left the theatre since. She has participated in all aspects of production at the Spokane Civic Theatre for the last eight years, including playing the role of Agnes opposite Academy Award-winner Patty Duke in Gypsy. Her play Only the Library got its start at the Civic as well, winning the Youth Division Award and tying for the Audience Choice Award in the 2003 Playwright's Forum Festival. The play also took Ms. Fitzpatrick to Lincoln, Nebraska as one of five students whose original works were presented at the 2003 International Thespian Society's annual festival. She looks forward to exercising her right to vote for the first time and heading off to college.
