The Carpenters who Set the Scene

Working In Theatre


Center Theatre Group Carpenter Kate Harrow works on the set for 'Vicuna' at the Kirk Douglas Theatre.

Center Theatre Group Carpenter Kate Harrow builds, loads in, repairs, and strikes scenery for shows at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Downtown Culver City. Watch her review plans, work with wood, and handle a pretty big saw in our latest Working in Theatre video. She also talks about her education at USC, her big break in summer stock, and what it’s like to be a woman in an industry that’s traditionally seen as male-dominated.
