Meet the Artist: UNCSA Executive Producer Katharine Laidlaw
When the University of North Carolina School of the Arts celebrated winning an Emmy Award for the UNC-TV broadcast of its 2012 production Much Ado About Nothing, accepting the award at the 28th annual Midsouth Regional Ceremony in Nashville, was UNCSA executive producer Katharine Laidlaw. Katharine’s Broadway production credits read like a Who’s Who list of Tony-nominated revivals, and her brand marketing experience includes positions with The Coca-Cola Company.
Since 2009 she’s overseen the annual production of The Nutcracker, special programming, performance marketing, and co-productions with external institutions. She’s also served as Executive Producer and General Manager of UNCSA’s Oklahoma!, Much Ado about Nothing, and Dance Fantasies, all of which have premiered on UNC-TV.
