Kathryn Cover

Artscene Backstage Award

Kathryn Cover (Burton) has been designing and directing in Lincoln since 1986. She holds a BA in Theatre from UNL, an MFA in Directing from the University of South Dakota and post grad Othmer Fellow at UNL in Costume Design. Kat has designed costumes in Lincoln for Flatwater Shakespeare Festival, UNL Theatre, UNL Opera, Lincoln Community Playhouse and others. Kat says “costume design is a very particular art, you have so many variables in the process: time period, style, directors’ concept, budget and most importantly the human form. I love the collaborative aspect of all theatre projects.” Kat lives in Weeping Water, NE with her husband William M. Cover II. “I am moved every day that I get to make a living doing theatre. My involvement for the last 16 years with Flatwater Shakes has been one of my life’s best experiences. Every theatre in Lincoln I work with has become a second family.”
