The Community Theatre of Howell is presenting the musical “Singin’ in the Rain Jr.” this weekend at the Howell High School Freshman Campus. From now until opening weekend, we’ve been introducing you to members of the cast. In today’s story, we meet Kellen Green who plays a policeman and appears in the ensemble.
Theater is starting to become a way of life for Kellen Green of Howell.
A third-grader at St. Mary’s School in Pinckney, Kellen has already appeared in three CTH shows and three summer theater camps, and has taken acting and improv classes and been in plays at the Michigan Actors Studio in Ferndale.
“My favorite thing about theater is blocking and acting in shows,” said Kellen, who lives in Howell with mom Lindsay and dad Randy. “It’s exciting to see a play come together through the process of blocking and I love the idea of developing a character.”
As for the current production, “What I likes most about being in ‘Singin’ in the Rain Jr.’ is that it’s based on a classic movie and the show has a lot of funny parts and great songs.”
And there’s nothing he loves more than being around his CTH family.
“What I like about being involved with CTH is all of the new friends I’ve made, and all the fun shows we put on,” he said.
He feels like he has a “theater family.” Everyone is so supportive and fun and there’s lots of opportunities for his parents to volunteer for the shows.
Kellen says, “Audiences can expect a mix of comedy and romance with this show, and a lot of great tap dancing.”
“Singin’ in the Rain Jr.” takes the stage March 15-17 at the Howell High School Freshman Campus. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with 2 p.m. matinees on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $9, available by clicking here.
