Kelly Shoemaker as “Kelly”

Kelly Shoemaker hails from the Dairy State of Wisconsin and received her BA in Music from the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay. Shortly after, Kelly relocated to the Big Apple and completed a Performance Degree from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA). After touring the US with the National Theater for Arts and Education and performing at various regional theatres, Kelly spent two wonderful years at the Surflight Theatre on Long Beach Island, traveling the state with Surflight to Go, Surflight’s Children’s Theatre troupe, performing on the mainstage, and performing summers as a singing waitress at the Show Place Ice Cream Parlour. Some favorite roles include Guenevere in “Camelot,” Meg March in “Little Women,” Pam Sakarian in “Baby,” April in “Company,” Reno Sweeney in “Anything Goes,” and Little Red in “Into the Woods,” among others. Now happily resettled in New York City, Kelly spends her days working in the Travel Industry, avoiding all cabaret shows that are at all like those featured in “Fat Guy,” as she has been in enough to last a lifetime.
