KerryAnn McKenna started theatre at the age of five, and hasn’t stopped since! She graduated from SCVTHS Performing Arts High School in New Jersey, and is now working towards her B.F.A. in Musical Theatre at the University of the Arts, right here in Philly. She thinks giving kids the tool of expression through theatre, is one of the most valuable gifts we can give! KerryAnn has a creative mind and disciplined work ethic, which translates well when working with young artists. She hopes to bring a love of theatre and plenty of fun to her classes! When she isn’t teaching or performing in outside shows, KerryAnn can also be seen as a performing princess for children’s birthday parties!
