Hi there! My name is Kali Skatchke and I am a Chicago-based stage and screen actor. I recently graduated from Northwestern University where I completed my degree in Theater with a certificate in Acting for the Screen and a minor in Business Institutions.

On-screen credits include: Hot Summer Daze, a webseries directed by Jenna Larson (check out the first episode here!), Indie Film is Alive!, a webseries with Chicago Comedy Film Festival (here is the first episode!); and The Lurker, a feature film alongside Scout Taylor-Compton and Naomi Grossman with Forever Safe Productions. Chicago theatre credits include: Ladies in Waiting at Theatre Above the Law; ENGAGE!, a choose-your-own science fiction adventure at Theater Wit; and Patience with The Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Company. I am currently playing Judith in Equivocation with Idle Muse Theatre Company, and in November I will be understudying Teenage Girl in Dead Man Walking at the Lyric Opera of Chicago.

Some of my other interests include astrology (Aquarius sun, Cancer moon, Libra rising), baking, unique ice cream flavors, subversive cross-stitch, and plant parenthood (I am raising three healthy aloe veras and a succulent!). Please look around and feel free to contact me with any questions or opportunities!
