Kellan’s current news
Recently returned to his Twin Cities hometown – and thrilled to relaunch his theatrical career after an extended hiatus.
Following an extended run in the Broadway company of Les Miserables, Kellan was invited to develop a new national Outreach and Education program for Actors’ Equity Association. More recently, he served as Co-Director at O'Hanlon Center for the Arts, in Marin county.
While in the Bay Area, he was a regular soloist with the San Francisco Gay Mens' Chorus, appearing in the title role of I Am Harvey Milk and camping it up in King George's show-stopping number from Hamilton.
Selected Theatre credits:
Les Miserables (Broadway), Zhivago (La Jolla Playhouse), Candide (Ahmanson Theatre & CT Repertory Theatre), Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (Papermill Playhouse), Floyd Collins (Weston Playhouse), Beach Blanket Babylon (San Francisco), Robin Hood (Children’s Theatre Company), and leading roles in Pippin, Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph...Dreamcoat, George M!, A Little Night Music, A Child’s Christmas in Wales, as well as an appearance in BBC Radio’s “Voice of Musical Theatre” in Wales.
