SCOTLAND, HERE I COME!
I will be playing Straveling/Hermia in MIDSUMMER, a Shakespearean mash-up by Director Sara Holdren and Producer Rachel Carpman.
Hey there, I'm Kelly!
ACTOR | PLAYWRIGHT | PRODUCER
I am a theater-maker who relishes
joyful, ensemble-driven projects,
and in my work, I seek to support and create spaces in which female-identifying voices and stories are amplified and embodied fully.
I believe in the magic of ensemble, storytelling, and humor. I am an "athlete of the heart" – and sometimes I go to yoga.
Growing up in Central Massachusetts, I fell in love with storytelling and make-believe at a young age. In fact, the playground was my very first rehearsal space (swings are great to sing on, by the way). Eventually, I graduated from schoolyard productions to study drama at NYU/ Tisch School of the Arts as a proud member of the New Studio on Broadway. I then went on to train at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, Shakespeare Academy @ Stratford in CT, and most recently, as a member of Fiasco Theater's 6 Week Conservatory.
Some of my favorite credits include Lydia and Lady Catherine in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE by Kate Hamill directed by Jason O’Connell, Hermia in MIDSUMMER directed and co-adapted by Sara Holdren, and as understudy for Hank (and dance captain) in THE APPLE BOYS by Jonothon Lyons and Ben Bonnema, directed by David Alpert, and choreographed by Marc Kimelman.
When I am not onstage, I work as an arts administrator and producer, supporting artists in development and in production to bring their stories to life. I also love to teach and share my love of all things voice, speech, and Shakespeare with professionals and young people.
I sang "Move On" from SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE as a part of Fiasco Theater's
A VALENTINE FOR SONDHEIM,
a virtual event celebrating the life and artistry of Stephen Sondheim.
