Sister’s first appearance invokes belly laughs, as she bounces in and starts improvising with her audience. Sharing childhood stories about her dad (who raised exotic animals and appeared on What’s My Line?), she creates a relaxed atmosphere where people can laugh and learn. Undernearth the hip-hop habit and youthful demeanor lies a visually challenged, middle-aged mother of three, committed to bringing her audience joy and leaving them feeling recharged!

Sister Katrina's altar-ego is teacher and director, Kathryn J. Hume, founder of Express Yourself Academy and creator of KidsShineOn! Based in Los Angeles for nine years and Minneapolis for 19, the award-winning program for kids now operates out of Austin, Texas.

Hume's resume includes many plays, musicals, voiceover work, and improvi- sation, and most recently she appeared at The City Theatre in Austin. Kathryn has written a book of poetry for children and a play about blindness called The Eyes Have It.
