Philia in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Hello new friends!

My name is Maddy Kelly, and I am a Chicago-based actor and recent graduate from Northwestern University with degrees in Theatre and Political Science and a Certificate in Musical Theatre.

My most recent adventures include playing Philia in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (Metropolis Performing Arts Centre), Anne Frank in The Diary of Anne Frank (Improv Playhouse), Ellen in Bullets Over Broadway (NightBlue Performing Arts), Cecily in The Importance of Being Earnest (Steel Beam Theatre), and Esther Smith in Meet Me in St. Louis (Edge of the Wood Theatre). I'm also excited to be playing Savannah in Freaky Friday (Williams Street Rep) this summer.

Some of my favorite Northwestern Credits include Assassins (Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme), Frankenstein (Elizabeth Lavenza), and 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche (Wren Robin).

When I'm not on stage, I love traveling and working as a teaching artist for young performers. Please explore and feel free to contact me about any opportunities or questions!
