My name is Katie Scarlett Swaney and I am a New York City based performer! Originally from Indianapolis, Indiana, I've known I loved to perform ever since I made my family watch me sing and dance to Cher's "Believe" in front of my fireplace at two years old. I graduated from Indiana University in May of 2020 with my BFA in Musical Theatre and minor in Arts Management.
Aside from performing, I love spending time with my family and friends, watching professional tennis (Vamos Rafa!), and reading about or watching documentaries on true crime. My favorite color is blue, although most people associate me with red because of my hair and my middle name!
My goal in life is to make people smile, and always bring a positive energy into the room. I strive to be energetic, dependable, and hardworking in every circumstance!

Tom Alvarez: On the Aisle With Tom Alvarez
"...[Katie] has not yet made her Broadway debut but gave evidence that she possesses both the belting vocals and stage persona it takes to perform on the Great White Way. She proved as much when she sang a haunting version of “Take Me to the World” from “Evening Primrose,” one of Sondheim’s more obscure musicals."
