STORIES . ARE . IMPORTANT

Hello! My name is Keely Smith. I am a Chicago based actor, an awesomely nerdy Star Trek enthusiast, and I absolutely love storytelling. Stories can change or affect the world, or just one person... and either outcome is a success to me.
I hold a BFA in Acting from Northern Illinois University. Although my first couple of years in Chicago has been much different than I imaged, with COVID-19 keeping most (if not all) acting opportunities remote. I have been enjoying the opportunity to spend more time focusing on my voice acting career. As an avid gamer (yes I know, my nerd is showing... it's great right?!) it has always been a goal of mine to work in voice over for video games in the future.
I am looking forward to diving into the Chicago market more and more, but I am glad to say (as a self proclaimed Start Trek enthusiast) that you can now find me performing regularly on the Otherworld Theatre stage in Starship Edsel: An Improvised Star Trek Satire! An who knows where else in the future!
I am always interested in making new connections, so please feel free to message me and, if you want, tell me your story!
