“A recent Chicago-to-LA transplant, Caitlin Oates celebrates her Californiaversary with SMT’s Short Play Night as Cassie in “One Touch.” Graduating from Northwestern University with a degree in theatre, she continued working in Chicago on a variety of projects, from Elaine in “Arsenic and Old Lace,” to choreography for and performance in the collaborative monthly dance show “MIXTAPE.” In the fall she had the opportunity to get her LA feet wet with the Halloween interactive theatre haunt “Gorlesque!” When she’s not reveling in the 70 degree winter season, she also enjoys working as a freelance makeup artist, finding all the best hikes, and checking all the boxes on her LA to-do list!”
