Kate Zabranski

Kate joined WIT in the mid 2000s. During her time she has performed in and produced shows, been a DIVA, a Gorilla, and part of the committee.

Why does she enjoy improv?   “Improv allows you to be the person you are not allowed to be in real life, you can say things that are possibly not particularly PC, really, you can say things without fear of arrest.” Kate has a fairly dark side that tends to manifest itself on stage, this used to worry her but now just realises that this is just what she does. “ If life is taken too seriously, death will come at a young age, it is so important to realise that nothing should be sacred. I never want to offend but I feel that things should always be looked at from many angles, this includes poking fun sometimes.”

In 2012 she decided that it was time to get her life in some semblance of order, and set up, (along with fellow witster Claire Alderton) a Property Management company. She now works happily from home, looking out over her beloved Kapiti Island.

Kate has been elected Co-Ordinator of WIT for 2016-2017, and  she intends to herd all the improv cats with humour and efficiency.
