Meet Erin Lee Kelly, our Musical Theatre Director and successful Children's recording artist.
Erin Lee Kelly began performing as a teenager in Kingston, Ontario, moving to New York after receiving a scholarship to study at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy. Upon graduation she spent several years as an actress and choreographer, performing in musicals, plays, and films before choosing to focus on music and theatre for children. Favorite roles include “Audrey” in Little Shop of Horrors, “June” in Gypsy and “Puck” in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Her first CD of original children’s music entitled Someone's Gotta Wanna Play, created with Marci Appelbaum, was awarded Best Recording for Younger Children, 2005 by the Children’s Music Web. Her follow-up, Snowdance, was debuted on Rosie O’Donnell’s R Family Cruise to Alaska, and went on to win two ASCAP Awards for excellence in writing and the Family Choice Award. Erin Lee is an artist-in-residence in inner-city schools in the Bronx teaching theatre, songwriting and storytelling. She was recently elected to and served on The Children’s Music Network Board of Directors. When not in a classroom she can frequently be found performing family concerts, fronting Erin Lee and the Up Past Bedtime Band. This January she was honored with her third ASCAP Award and the Kids Music Award.
