Kelsey Johnson is an actor, writer and educator here in Indianapolis, Indiana. She's honored to be an Indy Shakes company member and to continue uplifting and supporting her community through the arts. She received her BFA in Acting from Ball State University, graduating cum laude. After graduating she continued her education as an acting apprentice in the 2016-2017 Professional Training Company (PTC) at Actors Theatre of Louisville. She currently balances her time as a teacher, professional actor and the occasional spoken word poet. She has worked for Conner Prairie Living History Museum and Summit Performance Indianapolis as an actor and writer. She has worked as an educator for the Indiana Writers Center and Indy Reads bookstore (through their AmeriCorps program). She also spent one year as classroom theatre teacher on the East Side of Indy. Some of her professional acting credits include Helen and Mary Jane with Summit Performance Indianapolis and A Christmas Carol, #MATTER, and The Many Deaths of Nathan Stubblefield at Actors Theatre of Louisville. When she's not acting, writing or teaching, Kelsey can be found reading, singing old spirituals with her grandmother, pouring over the poetry of Mary Oliver and getting lost in the woods.
