  • The Queenslander, 29 Jan. 1898 p.215

    Kate Howarde was an actor, director, dramatist, entrepreneur.

    Arguably the leading Australian-based female thespian/writer/entrepreneur of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Kate Howarde carved out a distinguished stage career over more than forty years, producing drama, musical comedies, pantomime, revusicals, and film. As a result of this remarkable activity, she also provided opportunities for a number of practitioners who later went on to establish their own high-profile careers, notably S. A. Fitzgerald, Bert Bailey, and Charles Villiers.
