Kim O’Rourke has been involved in the performing arts since she was three years old.  During high school Kim was on TV with Roddy McDowall at KTLA, with Nils T. Granlund, and on Family Night with Horace Heidt.  She graduated from the Pasadena Playhouse College of Theatre Arts with a BA in Acting.  She obtained a BA in Literature from Scripps College, Claremont and an MA in Theatre History and Literature from CS, Fullerton. Other studies include doctoral work at USC and a Licentiate from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA).

Kim has directed over 50 plays in high school and university theatres and as an actor, she has appeared in nearly as many plays.  Kim has a Hall of Fame Award from the Educational Theatre Association, ETA, as well as from the California Thespian Society and an Outstanding Theatre Educator Award from the California Educational Theatre Association, CETA.

Currently, Kim and her colleague Barbara Masters, a 2009 Red Carpet honoree, are founders and producers of the Hallie Flanagan Players, a new theatre company dedicated to the ideals of the Federal Theatre Project of the 1930’s, when America experienced four exciting years of a true National Theatre.

The company’s premiere production is the musical story of Ethel Waters, Sweet Mama Stringbean, starring Vallimar Jansen and Frank Jansen, opening at the Fremont Center Theatre on Friday, November 26, 2010 for ten performances.
