Cat Ramirez is so grateful and excited to be an NNPN Producer in Residence. A Philadelphia-based director and producer, Cat was a member of InterAct Theatre Company's 2015/16 Apprentice class before graduating to her current position. She is the associate producer of Philadelphia Asian Performing Artists (PAPA) and has worked with Orbiter 3, Philadelphia Young Playwrights, Philadelphia Women's Theatre Festival, and Shakespeare in Clark Park. Cat earned a BA in Drama from Vassar College and has subsequently studied with Pig Iron Theatre Company (Philadelphia), Applied Mechanics (Philadelphia), and Spitfire Company (Prague). A proud Philadelphia-area native, Cat one day hopes to own a seafaring vessel named Rocky Balboata.
