MFA Acting Candidate
Originally from the Deep South, Abbie Cathcart earned her BFA from the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Her credits from there include Top Girls, The Skriker, Dancing at Lughnasa and Picnic. After graduating, Abbie relocated to Lanesboro, Minnesota to begin her apprenticeship at Commonweal Theatre Company. She then stayed on as a member of Commonweal's resident ensemble, where she worked in their artist/administrator model as an actor and a development team member.
Favorite roles while there include Margaret in Silent Sky, The Woman in Scotland Road, Shelby in Steel Magnolias, and Beth in Little Women. Abbie is beyond thrilled to be at MSU and to be continuing her education with this amazing group of artists.
