Kelli Lennox , Stage Crew

Have you ever worked at the Festival before?

No I have not worked at the Festival, this is my first year!

What brought you to Utah Shakespeare Festival?

I was drawn to the Festival because of the amazing shows that are produced and the professional association with the company. 

What brought you to your field and what keeps you doing your craft? 

This is my first year as a stage hand but I love theatre because it inspires people and through theatre I hope to uplift and inspire those around me. Also being a stage hand, you get to create the magic backstage that inspires the audience, so I enjoy being part of the mystery. 

Where’s your home base? 

Gahanna, Ohio 

What’s your education/training background? 

I just graduated with a B.A. in Theatre from Ashland University.

What are you looking forward to the most this summer? 

Working with people from all over the United States and hopefully making some lifelong friends and connections. 

Who/What inspired you to pursue your dream of acting/designing?

I have always loved theatre, I would rather look back on my life knowing I at least tried going after my dreams, than looking back and regretting I didn’t try because of fear. My parents have taught me that I should do what I love and reach for my dreams.  

How will you spend your time off while here?

Hanging out with friends and possibly making a couple trips to Las Vegas to see some of the shows there!

What is your favorite musical/play/Shakespeare play? 

Musical- A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder

Play- Peter and the Starcatcher

Shakespeare play- A Midsummer Night's Dream 

If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be?

Flying so I could go anywhere I wanted and see the world!

Syracuse, Utah

What’s your education/training background?
