Kayli is excited to be making her Crane River Theater debut and fulfilling her childhood dream of being in a production of the iconic musical Annie. She is currently a Bachelor of Arts theater student at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. She recently played the role of Dorine in Tartuffe and Chava in Fiddler on the Roof as part of Concordia’s Main Stage season. Kayli’s professional theater experience includes Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Pippi Longstocking, and The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, all with the Children’s Theatre Company (CTC) in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and has also performed with various companies around the Twin Cities. Besides performing, Kayli has been a programming assistant at Trollwood Performing Arts School, a teaching assistant at CTC, and is currently the student supervisor for the Concordia Theater Public Relations team. She is blessed that her family and friends have been supportive in all her artistic endeavors and is enjoying this summer doing all the things she loves!
