With all our scripts for Season 2 written and ready for production planning, we couldn't be more excited.
Speaking of production planning, we have a beautiful and intelligent new addition to our team. We would love to formally introduce you to our new casting director and locations manager, Kaitlyn Griggs. You may recognize her as the beyond funny DREAMERS character, Jess.
Kaitlyn is not only an amazing actress, but a wonderful team player, amazing organizer, and huge supporter of the show. So it was a no-brainer to hire her on for Season 2 to head up our casting and location departments. During Season 1 these responsibilities were shared between Dane Ohlrogge and Kelsey Jorissen, but as you may know both Dane and Kelsey also headed up writing, directing, camera work, editing, scheduling, craft services, costumes...
Read on to learn more about how this hilarious and fantastic woman got to be where she is now.
Kaitlyn (you really can call her Kate, or Katie works too) enjoys taking on new challenges in addition to acting. She has a variety of experience in various fields from being a casting intern at Geddes Agency, to a teacher at Acting Studio Chicago, as well as an assistant special education teacher at British School of Chicago. She also has over 3 years of experience in the real estate industry and recently started working at @properties as a licensed real estate broker.
Kaitlyn/Katie/Kate is thrilled to be a co-producer and casting director on Season 2 of The Dreamers. She is most excited to meet and enjoy the talents of more Chicago artists, because nothing brings her more joy!
