Amy Keeler
Ella
 

Amy is thrilled to be on the Hale stage once again for the show she has dreamed about doing since it opened on Broadway in 2013. Most recently seen as Marguerite in The Scarlet Pimpernel, Amy’s other favorite roles on our stage include Amalia in She Loves Me, Ariel in The Little Mermaid, Mother in Ragtime, and Millie in Thoroughly Modern Millie. Amy holds a BFA in Music Dance Theatre from BYU, and spent many years working for the Walt Disney Company in Hong Kong and Orlando, notably as Belle in “Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage”, and as Cinderella at various special events. Giddy to revisit her inner princess after long days as mommy to three boys - Davis (7), Hayden (5), and Bennett (3), Amy spends her days watching the same episode of Curious George oooooooovver and over again, playing LEGO and “Toyota Dealership”, letting SuperWhy teach her three-year-old how to read, flying around the house as Hiccup and Toothless, and perfecting the art of pancake making. Once the kids are in bed, she enjoys serenading/torturing her husband (39) with pop hits of the 90s, Celine Dion songs, and the ballads of Barry Manilow. Her coping mechanisms for life include peanut butter, Costa Vida, Tilamook Mudslide ice cream, yearly trips to NYC, and really wonderful friends. Hubby Chuck makes this all possible, and many, many thanks to her beloved Hale family, who, in the past year, have shown their love in ways that we can never possibly repay.
