Kelly Prendergast was born in sunny San Diego, California. She loves the year round sun, but after visiting New York City for the first time when she was 9 years old, she knew that was where she belonged. She developed her passion for performing in elementary school, and hasn't stopped singing, acting and dancing since. She has performed with many different theatre companies throughout San Diego. Some of her favorite experiences include winning the Old Globe Honors award for Musical Theatre, playing Cosette in Les Miserables at an outdoor amphitheater, and performing alongside her acting coach in a concert version of Evita.
Kelly will be graduating from Rider University in May with a BFA in Musical Theatre.
- Other interests include health and fitness, mud runs and Spartan races with her father, coloring, and volunteering with kids and animals. Kelly can't wait to fulfill her lifelong dream of being an actress in New York City.
