KD Theatre Productions was formed in 2003 by founders Daniel Bell and Katherine Hickmott, at the time only 13 years old. Now 10 Years on Katherine and Daniel have finished their professional training in Musical Theatre and are producing numerous shows across the UK. Operating from their home base in Cambridgeshire, KD always has a busy calendar; staging various productions throughout the year, from Full Scale Musicals to Family Shows– always performing to a packed house. Their work has taken them right across the country including the world famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival where they produced 3 sell out musical productions. This year’s current slate of work includes a tour of ‘Treasure Island’, a full packed summer season at The Princess Theatre in Hunstanton, including ‘The Great British Seaside Special’ and a brand new children’s show ‘ The Cuddle Bunnies’ and a jam packed Christmas Season with productions in Huntingdon, Ely and Northwich.
Katherine has had many years experience in producing full scale productions and along this journey she discovered her love for Choreography. She is always bringing fresh and inventive choreography to the stage and likes to work closely with the director to ensure the overall product of any of her work reflects the stories of which ever Musical has captured their producing eyes that year.
Katherine trained in Musical Theatre at CPA Studios in Romford and is also an passionate performer.
Alongside her creative work and performing Katherine is also an experienced teacher both in Musical Theatre and Dance and is proudly a principle and teacher along with Daniel at the hugely popular KD Academy. Katherine is also a qualified teacher in ISTD Modern and soon to be accompanied by her ISTD tap qualification.
Daniel has been producing shows for many years. With several pantomimes, cabarets & musical theatre shows to his credit, he set up his company ‘KD Theatre Productions’ with his business partner, Katherine Hickmott. With ‘KD’, Daniel went on to produce, write & direct a number of productions.
This year, as well as producing KD Theatre Production’s Christmas season, Daniel will be producing a production of ‘Queen Lear’ at The Tristan Bates Theatre in London and ‘Fame’ the Musical in Cambridge.
