About Goodly Creatures
Personal. Spiritual. Exhilarating. Theatre.
Goodly Creatures is a travelling theatre company based in Elgin, IL that specializes in breathing new life into classic works of literature. To fulfill our duty, we produce original plays, and established adaptations of canonized works of literature for the stage in modern, edgy, and thrilling ways. Some have called us Brechtian, others Avant-Garde, and we embrace these titles as the fresh voice of the modern combined with the universal and timeless wisdom of the classics!
MEET OUR FOUNDER
Katrina Syrris is an actor, director, producer, and playwright in the Fox Valley Area. She has been involved in theatre since she was four years old, after she gripped her chest and screeched while slowly sliding down the giant lazy boy in her living room, prompting her parents to put her into acting classes. Since then she has appeared in over 30 stage productions, both in professional and community theatre. She is founder of Goodly Creatures, a traveling theatre company previously seen at the Elgin Art Showcase, and Stage 773 in Chicago. She is also Goodly's primary educator, teaching acting lessons, and yoga classes for artists and the general public. She has directed for theatres including The Midsummer Theatre Troupe, and The Riverfront Playhouse, in addition to teaching for Drama Kids International. As an actress, she has been nominated by Broadway World Chicago for Best Actress for her appearance in “The Drowning Girls” and for best Ensemble for “The Drowning Girls” and “Boeing Boeing.”
