Poster Artist Has Roots in YATS

By Don Redman

Kahra Martinez comes from a family that has played a prominent role at Slidell Little Theatre for more than a decade. Her father, Fred, has served on the board of directors in various capacities, including until just recently Board President. Her mother, the late Fabian Martinez, was instrumental in getting the family involved in SLT, enrolling Kahra and sisters Kirstin and Kelsey in the Young Actors Theatre of Slidell (YATS) program and later co-directing YATS for years.

Today, Kahra is a web and mobile application designer in Hammond. She is a graduate of Southeastern Louisiana University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Art with emphases in graphic design, digital art and painting.

In addition to co-creating SLT’s very first website with her father, for the past several years Kahra has also donated her artistic talents to designing several posters for our main stage, YATS and mini-YATS shows. Her designs for the 2015 YATS season were simply fantastic and were a wonderful gift to a program that is so near and dear to the entire Martinez family.
