Kelsie Jepsen

Kelsie Jepsen is thrilled to teach with The Shakespeare Forum.  Her love for acting and Shakespeare began in the 6h grade when she performed her first play as Caliban in The Tempest.  Her passion for teaching was ignited in 2007 when she started teaching with the Children's Theatre Company in Minneapolis.  Kelsie is committed to working with under-served communities and children.  Her mission is to pass on her love for theater while cultivating community and helping children develop social skills and build self-esteem and confidence.


Kelsie is a proud member of Actors' Equity. Select credits include: Henry V (The Shakespeare Forum); Julius Caesar (Pioneer Theatre Company); In a TIlted Place (Troy Deutsch), Undone (directed by Claybourne Elder), The Magic Mrs. Piggle Wiggle, Seussical, Tale of a West Texas Marsupial Girl (world premier Lisa D'Amour), Antigone, The Big Friendly Giant (The Children's Theatre Company); Sam I Was, Saturday's Voyeur ('09, '11, '12 Salt Lake Acting Company).  Kelsie holds a BFA from the University of Utah Actor Training Program.
