What's New & What's Next
THE CONGRESSWOMEN ARE COMING - LIVE!
Kelly is thrilled to be bringing an updated version of her adaptation of this Aristophanes' comedy to the first AEA-approved theatre to safely reopen for indoor & in-person seating post-pandemic. New Hampshire's Weathervane Theatre will present THE CONGRESSWOMEN both in-person and virtually on Sunday October 4th and Tuesday October 6th. Kelly will also appear as "Praxagora" in the staged-reading directed by Ethan Paulini. Virtual ticket holders will have 72 hours access to view the performance.

Staying Creative during Quarantine
Company-19, founded by Director/Actor Kerrie Seymour, was created in order to bring new works to theatre lovers, theatre students, and theatre practitioners during this unprecedented time of self-isolation.
While our 2020 visions of gathering together in person were on hold, Kelly joined fellow artists to bring some 'live" entertainment (virtually) to audiences during quarantine. First up: Kelly played "Mo" in a live-streamed reading of THE RELIGION THING by Renee Calarco with Company-19. You can rewatch this witty and heartfelt new play by clicking on the image below.
The Thanksgiving Play at Warehouse Theatre
Kelly spent the last months of 2019 appearing as "Logan" in
THE THANKSGIVING PLAY.
Kelly had a fabulous time appearing in the sold-out run of the Warehouse Theatre's production in her native South Carolina. Check out Kelly's interview with WSPA's YOUR CAROLINA (left). THE THANKSGIVING PLAY is a satire by Larissa Fasthorse, and was directed by Kerrie Seymour.

Starring Elena Shaddow (Best Performance by an Actress Winner- NYMF 2019), MY REAL MOTHER tells the story of an open adoption. Chronicling 25 years of a tumultuous and powerful relationship, Alaina (the adoptive mother) and Alex (the birth mother) make up the rules as they go along, colliding with their families, jobs and obligations, determined to ensure the child turns out alright. Narrated by Sara, the young woman that baby grows up to be, My Real Mother is filled with humor and heart set to a lush, contemporary musical theatre score. Misti B. Wills directed the production, choreographed by Shannon Lewis.
