Kendall Kotcher - Fight Director
When Kendall Kotcher moved to the Traverse City area for a new job about five years ago, she already knew many of the community’s unique characteristics: The beautiful views along Lake Michigan and Grand Traverse Bay, the fun urban vibe downtown and the chance to be out in the peaceful solace of wine country or the majestic splendor of the Sleeping Bear Dunes in just a few minutes’ drive.
"I'm just incredibly proud and brimming over with warm fuzzies thanks to the nuclear talent & astute brilliance of Kendall Kotcher" - John Wray
John Wray, writer and director of a growth mindset youth theatre play called "Be Your Own Hero!" premiered by the Brainstormers in Detroit, Michigan.
Kendall was featured in the Northern Express' Top 10 things to do in Traverse City in the Spring of 2022. She played the role of Heidi in the musical [title of show] at Old Town Playhouse.
Kendall is currently in Traverse City, MI acting as the Traverse City Film Festival's Office Manager. She interned during the summer of 2016 on their communications team and is stoked to be back with the festival and supervising the interns!
A photo (taken by Michael Poehlman) from last year's Traverse City Film Festival, has ended up on the cover of the 2017 edition of "Filmgoer" magazine! I performed during the opening night party when Michael snapped this underneath the State Theatre marquee. The magazine can be found online or in northern Michigan stores!
