hello friend! I'm

Jacqueline Keeley

AEA, actress & director


I'm an actress who brings big choices and grounded characters.

I grew up in LA and felt summoned to NYC, where I've lived for over 10 years. I love the theater in all forms, and enjoy working in film and TV as well. I do the work before stepping into rehearsals so we can make the best art together possible. I love to play in rehearsal, and am always open to new direction, suggestions, or whatever your crazy idea is that you aren't sure is going to work.

I began directing in 2022, making my directorial debut with 'A Middle School Play' at The Tank, and associate directing 'Tick, Tick...BOOM!' under Jennie Hughes with Forager Theater Company at The New Ohio Theater. I love directing and working with actors to create fully realized characters and bring them to life.
