Last updated: 14 August 20192019 is proving to be a busy and exciting year for Jane Keller. Jane continues to work for balance between her performing life and her teaching life. This is not always easy, but it is very rewarding.
In January, Jane was a tutor at the NZ Singing School. She has taught for many years at this International biannual school. Jane enjoys working with so many outstanding colleagues and students at this very unique school.
February was very special as Jane debuted her latest one woman show, SUNDAYS AT IRA'S at the Art Deco Festival in Napier. This is the 5th cabaret show that she has created and performed with Michael Nicholas Williams. 3 Sell Out shows and wonderful audience response. The Art Deco Festival was spectacular and she will be going back.
In March, Jane led a singing workshop at the annual MTNZ Conference. This year it was at the Ellerslie Conference Centre in Auckland. These gatherings are always so informative and SO much fun.
May and June were extremely busy months as Jane was rehearsing and then performing the role of Jeanette in Kauri Musical Theatre's production of THE FULL MONTY. It is a dream character role and Jane certainly made the most of it. She received wonderful reviews and many laughs. Her students were also rehearsing their show in May and performed it a week after THE FULL MONTY closed. Very hectic time.
July was basically recovering from June and getting back to a regular teaching schedule.
In August, Jane will be leading singing workshops at the MTNZ 30Plus Bootcamp. She is really looking forward to this.
In October, Jane and Michael will be performing SUNDAYS AT IRA'S twice in the Kokomai Festival in the Wairarapa. And Jane will then be traveling to Auckland to adjudicate the Graham Allen Musical Theatre Prize Competition. She has done this every year for the last five years.
Watch this space for some very exciting news about SUNDAYS AT IRA'S in 2020. Mum is the word at the moment.
Jane has a large private vocal studio in Wellington. She specializes in teaching musical theatre singing styles and repertoire.
