"I'm Always Drunk in San Francisco", music and lyrics by Tommy Wolf
January 26, 2013 performance with the Tom Shaw Trio at Martuni's, SF
A University of California, Berkeley and Harvard Law School graduate, Kathleen Antonia is an accomplished writer and activist in addition to Actor, singer, and dancer. She has published everything from law review articles to short stories to poetry and fundraises for the AIDS and Breast Cancer Emergency Funds, Women's Cancer Resource Center, and Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. An avid indoor rower and environmentalist, Antonia also logs more than 200,000 meters each holiday season to raise money for the Natural Resources Defense Council.
Growing up with lessons in dance, martial arts, guitar, violin, and drums, it was a relatively easy transition from the practice of law to the entertainment industry. Antonia trained with the late, great Cliff Osmond and a number of other talented teachers including Carissa Blix and Beau Bonneau (Commercial On-camera), Dana Cory and Ed Hooks (Improv), Jim Jarrett (Meisner Technique), Kurtis Matthews (Stand-Up Comedy), Paoli Lacy (Physical Comedy), Carla Pantoja (Stage Combat), Tamisa A'awapuhi (Tahitian Ori), Amanda Grady (Odissi Indian Classical Dance), Ronnie Reddick and Christiane Crawford (Hip Hop Jazz), Toran McGill (Pole Dancing), Jake Kimball and Simon Rowston (Trapeze), Betty Shamieh and Josephina Lopez (Writing), Tina Mabry (Directing), and Ben Ferrer (Lighting).
First booking jingles for Mattel, Antonia now boasts credits that include on-camera and voiceover work for popular video games, commercials, and documentaries. She has acted in numerous films including Sundance Film Festival winner Dopamine and television shows House MD and Trauma. Antonia has also performed on stage with the American Conservatory Theater, San Francisco Mime Troupe, Golden Thread Productions, San Francisco Opera, and a host of other theatrical companies as well as played the didjeridu in the Bank of America Down Under Tour for the 2000 Olympic Games. A long time singer of every genre, her credits include arias for Michael Kaulkin's opera The Ghost of Wu, live jazz performances with the Tom Shaw Trio and Marcus Shelby, and award winning dance vocals for The Body Electric as a member of Leo Frappier Band (LFB).
In 2007, Antonia established What The ... Productions which has since released her first solo CD Next Time, produced the webseries Cankles and a CombOver, web-pilots Blatinas and Bad Side, and parodies Twilight Kitty and Macy Gray: Hash Call, and earned her Honorable Mention for the documentary Getting Played: who's playing you? at the 2010 International Black Women's Film Festival, the trailers for which have over 35,000 views on YouTube.
