Personal History

From Charlotte NC with a brief stint in Memphis TN (grades 6-9), I was raised with New Faces of 1952 on the record player. Occasionally it was swapped out for

A Chorus Line or Annie. Not quite born in a trunk but... 

I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I was proud to member of the UNC Clef Hangers. After graduation, I headed to Florida to be an apprentice at the then newly christened Jupiter Theatre.

After my time in FL, I moved to New York and hit the streets auditioning.  

I received my Equity card from a Chorus call for A Tribute to Danny Kaye: The Court Jester at The Concord Hotel (Dirty Dancing). I got my card on a Cabaret Contract! 

It was two week job and I was never prouder to be part of something.

Tell me about your name?

It’s Kilty with a “L” not Kitty with a “T” cause Kitty with a “T” goes meow.

(And I ROAR!)

Honestly, Kilty is my given name. I am named after my paternal grandmother, 

Margaret Kilty. One thing I didn't have to worry about when joining Equity.

It was obviously available.

Awards?

I am two-time Joey Award winner for Best Foreign Coat Check at Joe Allen's Bar Centrale. If you think I am joking, check out this article in The New Yorker.
