aboutKim first captured the hearts of Denver theater-goers when she was cast, at the age of 11, in the role of Marta in the Country Dinner Playhouse production of “The Sound of Music”. She also shined in “Annie Get Your Gun”, “The King and I”, and “Showboat”.
In 1982 Producer/Director, Bill McHale, cast her in the lead role of the West Coast Premiere of the musical, “Annie.” For 14 months, she and an immensely talented cast played sold out performances in Colorado and Kentucky. To date, “Annie” remains the show most dear to her heart. Kim has been a proud member of Actor’s Equity Association for over 36 years.
Kim graduated in 1992 from the University of Southern California, Rossier School of Education, and went on to share her passion for music by teaching at Mary Butler, a middle school for the performing and visual arts in Long Beach, California.
