Meet Your Teacher

Katrina Syrris is an actor, director, producer, and playwright in the Fox Valley Area, and currently serves on the board of the Elgin Cultural Arts Commission. She has been involved in theatre since she was four years old, after she gripped her chest and screeched while slowly sliding down the giant lazy boy in her living room, prompting her parents to put her into acting classes. Since then, she has starred in and directed shows consistently for the last two decades. She is founder of Goodly Creatures Theatre, previously seen at the Elgin Art Showcase, Stage 773 in Chicago, and festivals. She is also Goodly's primary educator, teaching acting lessons, and yoga classes for artists and the general public. As an actress, she has been nominated by Broadway World Chicago for Best Actress for her appearance as Alice in The Drowning Girls and for best Ensemble for The Drowning Girls and Boeing Boeing (Gabriella). 


Other favorite roles include Woman #3 in The Big Meal, Helena in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Young Woman in Machinal, Viola in Twelfth Night, Sooze in SubUrbia, Annie in Over the Tavern, and Annie in The Miracle Worker. She has also been featured in Bravo Magazine's "On the Marquee" as a featured interview.
