Remembering Catalina

It is with great sadness that we memorialize the life of Catalina Herrera, taken from us on February 28th, 2024.  Catalina has been a star on our stages for many years and was a true joy to watch on stage. She was in the current productions of “Mean Girls” and “Anastasia” and a Senior at Reedy High School.

Catalina was active in multiple NTPA productions over the years and our Collegiate Pursuits program. She had also just been accepted at one of the best performing arts schools in the country, Elon University.

Catalina Herrera Memorial Fund

One of Catalina’s greatest loves was theatre, which was evident to anyone who watched her shine on stage. Catalina’s family has asked that any gifts/donations made in Catalina’s honor to go to North Texas Performing Arts, so that more youth can experience the transformative power of the performing arts.
