Katelyn Polischuk (she/her) is an actor, writer, and musician currently living and working in her hometown of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She is a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan's Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) program in acting, and an alumni of Persephone Theatre's Kinsmen Young Company.
Her recent appearances include several shows on her university's Greystone stage, in works such as Les Belles Soeurs, The Golden Age, and Bronte.
Since completing her program, Katelyn has worked on several productions at the Saskatoon Fringe Festival, including, Sextet: Six Short Plays About Love, Sex, and Relationships (which was recognized as one of the best selling shows of 2017), and The Photocopier - both of which were original scripts. Katelyn relishes the opportunity to work closely with emerging local playwrights and help to bring their visions to life.
Katelyn has also had the opportunity to work on two shows with Persephone Theatre, and made her debut as Georgiana Darcy in the 2018 production of Pride and Prejudice. This past spring, she had the chance to play one of her favourite Shakespearian heroines as Ophelia in Tom Stoppard's classic play, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.
