Musical Theatre Alumna to Guest Star on Nickelodeon Show

Katie LadnerMusical Theater graduate Katie Ladner (’13) will guest star in an episode of Nick at Nite’s “See Dad Run” airing Sept. 29 at 7 p.m. CST. “See Dad Run” stars Scott Baio as a TV sitcom dad who leaves show business to raise his three children after his wife returns to acting. Ladner plays the character “Kate” ‐ a British student who encourages Baio’s on‐screen daughter to break out of her predictability rut. The show was taped in May at L.A.’s Paramount Studios before a live studio audience the week before graduation.

“Nickelodeon flew me back on the Friday night red yye from L.A. so I could walk in my Saturday morning graduation ceremony,” Ladner said. “It was such a surreal experience! I can honestly say that I saw my dreams coming true before my very eyes.”

Ladner is a native of Madison, Miss., and plans to make New York City her home this fall. She is currently originating the role of “Martha Dunstock” in the Broadway workshop production of “Heathers the Musical” written by Laurence O’Keefe (“Legally Blonde”) and Kevin Murphy and directed by Andy Fickman (“She’s the Man”).
