In August 2014, Meredith will be filming at Edwards Mansion in Redlands, CA, in the role of Lady Agatha Carlise in an adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s Lady Windemere’s Fan. The film will be directed by Joseph Henson, and produced in conjunction with International Theater Artists.
The short film Wedlock, starring Kitz and adapted from award-winning author Richard Bausch’s short story, has been screened at the Los Angeles Short Film Fest in July 2014, and was featured by the Huffington Post in an article, LA Shorts Fest: Two Adaptations.
In February 2014, Meredith returned to the stage in Nick Dear’s adaptation of Shelley’s Frankenstein, which was staged at the beautifully preserved California Theatre for the Performing Arts in downtown San Bernardino.
In 2012, Meredith was the lead in a short poetic treatise, And Out Into the Bright Blue Sky, featuring the voice of Academy-Award winner, Louise Fletcher (One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest).
Being raised on the swampy shores of Lake Erie in a rust belt town, her childhood had all the theatrical makings of an actor. Gothic cathedrals with organs and incense, pianos covered in the sheet music of Rogers & Hammerstein, record players pumping Led Zeppelin, libraries, old gems and furs at easy disposal, canopying trees, and slews of theater green rooms, make for one precocious and gregarious young thespian.
After being accepted into the acting program at the University of Michigan, she opted to study Directing. All the while, she directed Opera and African-American classics while living in a vegan Co-op. In 2009, she returned to acting as the maniacal management consultant, Dr. Leda Hackle in New York, and relocated to Los Angeles in 2011.
