Kelly Doherty | Northern Sky Theater

Kelly Doherty

Director / Choreographer / Performer

Kelly has made a name for herself since moving to Milwaukee. She has appeared with Chamber Theater, Skylight Music Theater, Renaissance Theaterworks, Milwaukee Opera Theater, Next Act, and most recently with First Stage Theater where she lived out her childhood dream of playing the Trunchbull in Matilda. Some favorites include Bodey (Lovely Sunday for Creve Ceouer), Pish Tush (The Mikado), Maria/Homer (Mr. Burns), Williamina (Silent Sky), and to her knowledge has never been an ingenue. Next season, she will be directing The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors at First Stage Theater. When not onstage, she enjoys watching made-for-TV romantic comedies, drinking fine whiskey while not wearing pants, and singing to her cats. Not necessarily in that order. Much love to her parents for their continued love and support.
