Actor Kathy Grable returns to Moundridge

By KBBE News
October 18, 2017

Actor and voice-over artist Kathy Grable from Los Angeles (known in central Kansas as Kathy Krehbiel) will present a one-woman show “The Go To Girl” at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 23 in Moundridge High School Auditorium. The production is sponsored by the Moundridge Arts Council along with Moundridge High School.

The show will bring the actor back to her high school stage for the first time. Known in Hollywood for her voice overs, Kathy will present her story: How does a girl from a farming community in Kansas make it all the way to Hollywood and find success as a working actor? Hard work, discipline and lessons learned from parents, teachers and others gave her a “Yeah, I can do that!” attitude. The show will include film clips, readings and music.

“The Moundridge Arts Council is pleased to welcome Kathy Krehbiel back to the community where she got her start on stage,” says Lory Fisher, board president of the nonprofit. “We look forward to an entertaining evening and invite all who enjoy stage and screen to attend.”

After graduating from Moundridge High School, Kathy attended Bethel College in North Newton, where she completed her bachelor of arts degree with three majors: theater, education, and fine arts with a music minor. Then she began her acting career.

Early on, Kathy Krehbiel changed her name when she took a role in a soap opera in New York. The name Krehbiel seemed hard to spell and pronounce, she was told. With the blessing of her parents Harry and Alice Krehbiel, who lived on a farm near Elyria where Kathy grew up, the young performer took the stage name Kathy Grable.

Kathy performed in summer stock, regional theaters and three national stage production tours all over the country before settling into Los Angeles to pursue on-camera and voice-over work. She’s been in TV shows such as “Last Man Standing” and “Harry’s Law.” She has worked in films like “Ancient Prophecies” and “Doppelganger.” In “Batman Forever” her voice was the voice double for Nicole Kidman. For commercials she has worked both on camera and behind the microphone.

As a director, Kathy has tackled everything from short films to commercials. She also directed a 100-voice children’s choir at the Hollywood Bowl on Easter Sunday in 2016.

She remains busy with acting and directing. In September, she and her husband, Greg Perkins, directed, produced and acted in a 1940s live radio show for their church to raise money for hurricane victims. The couple has two daughters—Emily is 17 and Katie, 16.

Kathy’s family includes sisters Georgiana Peterson of McPherson and Barb Krehbiel-Gehring of Manhattan, sisters-in-law Nancy Krehbiel of rural McPherson and Consuelo Krehbiel of Chicago, Ill., as well as many other relatives. Her parents and brothers Steve and Val are no longer living.

Tickets for “The Go To Girl” are $10 prior to Oct. 23 and $12 on the day of the performance.

Beginning Oct. 6, tickets can be purchased from Carla Stucky at Kirk Stucky CPA, 103 North Christian, Moundridge (weekdays, 1 to 4 p.m.).

To reserve a ticket for pick up the evening of the performance, call June Krehbiel at 620-345-2360. All seats are general admission. Doors and ticket sales open at 6:30 p.m. the night of the performance. Tickets reserved will be held until 7:15 p.m.

Moundridge High School Auditorium is at 526 East Cole in Moundridge.

Everhart is a graduate of Wichita State University, and has served as an Adjunct Curator of Paleontology at the Sternberg Museum of Natural History, since 1998.
