Kim Carlson

Theatre Artist
Art is for everyone, and I’m so pleased to be able to share my passion with others.
I’ve been a singer all of my life, but it wasn’t until I discovered Theatre that I realized its transformative powers. You can literally be anything you want through theatre!
I’m from Omaha originally, and earned my BFA in Theatre at Avila University in Kansas City, Missouri. After school, I moved to Chicago, where I studied improv at Second City, and worked with The Indie Boots Theatre Ensemble.
 After a decade in the Windy City, it feels good to be back home working with WhyArts and making music with my band, Hartford/Focht.
