M. KITTY GETLIKM. Kitty Peace Getlik

Artistic Director and Manager of Kelsey Theatre

It's my job to put together an exciting season each year for Kelsey, seek out good companies and individuals to bring it to life, market it, coordinate it, and greet the folks when they come to see it. Of course there's a lot more to it and I couldn't do it without a lot of help from my friends - my assistant Amy Bessellieu, my coworkers and volunteers. I get a thrill out of live theatre and want to share that thrill with everyone. That is why I strive to produce good shows at a reasonable price here at Kelsey. In my spare time - I teach Introduction to Theater (TA 101) and do theatre. I have also been a director, actress, lighting designer, and the general manager of The Open Air Theatre at Washington Crossing State Park.. In most circles, nowadays though, I am known as "Jessica's mom" - which is as it should be!, phone extension: 3580,

Senior Administrative Specialist

My longstanding relationship with Kelsey Theatre began when I joined the Tomato Patch Program in 1980. After high school, I went on to take classes here at Mercer County Community College. I then spent several years volunteering at the Theatre before taking on a part-time job there. There were a few years when I worked elsewhere, but I just couldn't stay away! It has been my joy to be a part of Kelsey Theatre's full-time staff since 2001. When I am not handling the numerous phone calls and paperwork, you might spot me backstage, creating scenic art, making properties, or even acting! I have an associate degree in advertising design through MCCC and a bachelor’s degree in art through Thomas Edison State College. When I am not at the Theatre, I can be found cruising, watercolor painting, collecting iron on patches from my adventures, and collecting mouse figurines. Please contact me if you would like to get involved as a volunteer!
