Recent performance credits include Smoke on the Mountain, Kiss me Kate, The Sound of Music, Nunsense, The Odd Couple and Billy Blythe. A classically trained singer, Kelley has performed on operatic and concert stages across the country and is always happy to have the opportunity to perform here at home. This is Kelley’s Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre debut, and what an introduction! It’s been an honor and a privilege to work with such an amazing ensemble. Many thanks for the opportunity. Kelley’s next adventure will be as the Mother Abbess in The Sound of Music. Thanks for supporting live theatre!
