My name is Katy Hahn, I use she/her pronouns, and I work as a professional actor, educator, and collaborator in the state of Iowa. I live in the small town of Atkins (just west of Cedar Rapids) with my husband and children. I use my skills as a theatre artist to spark creativity, inspire confidence, launch discourse, cultivate empathy, and build community.
In addition to performing, directing, and teaching theatre in college, I offer a variety of coaching services. Please review my current guidelines and rates at the link below. Contact me for more information!
I have trained and worked professionally across Iowa and the U.S. as a theatre instructor, accent/dialect coach, director, and actor for stage, screen, and voice over projects.

One of the Bard’s most boldly theatrical works, this “war play” explores passion, leadership, patriotism, and destiny – leading to the storied English victory over the French at Agincourt. Follow as Henry learns what it means to be a king, uniting his country and reaching the cusp of victory – but at what cost?

“A Comedy. A Quartet. A Revolutionary Dream Fugue. A True Story.”
Written by Lauren Gunderson, one of the most produced playwrights in America in the past 5 years, The Revolutionists follows four women fighting for freedom and feminism in France during the Reign of Terror. The playwright Olympe de Gouge, Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle, assassin Charlotte Corday, and infamous former queen Marie-Antoinette take the audience on a wild ride, grappling with everything from art to activism. With a script written in the modern vernacular, themes of extremism and insanity resonate through the ages and leave the audience inspired, entertained…and maybe even a little terrified!
Liberté, égalité, sororité!
In the summer of 2020 I formed a Facebook group to connect with other artists who are not cis men. I was attracted to the acronym “WATT” because I liked the idea of referring to the group as something that literally meant “a unit of power.”
WATT is a group for women, trans men, and nonbinary people who are involved in the arts (in any way) and seeking to connect with others! We invite you to join us. Click the logo above!
Brought to you by the Workers in the Arts Think Tank (WATT), Iowa artist Merric Bower (they/them) presented a FREE workshop about trans representation in the arts on July 8, 2021 @ 7pm CST. Thank you to everyone who joined us to learn more about this important topic! Contact me for more information on this workshop and future offerings.
