Born in Washington, D.C., and a Maryland native, Kedren Spencer is an actor and singer currently based in New York City. She grew up passionately playing sports and singing, but it wasn't until her last semester of undergrad that she discovered she wanted to pursue a career in the Theatre.
Kedren earned a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Marlyand, after attending the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and studying abroad with the program Semester at Sea. In her last semester at college, she auditioned for a musical theatre workshop, got in, and hasn't looked back since!
While in school and after graduating, Kedren worked with children and young adults with special needs, primarily with Autism Spectrum Disorders, as an in-home therapist and a teaching assistant in the classroom. She absolutely loves working with kids and continues to engage with youth whenever possible.
Since beginning her professional career in 2012, Kedren has appeared both on and off the stage in shows such as Law & Order: SVU, The Tempest, Evita, Richard III, Hair, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Roe, and NBC's Manifest.
In 2018, Kedren graduated with her MFA from the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training!
She loves to travel and dance and does Acting and Performance Coaching in her spare time, which she greatly enjoys.
Kedren, a recently elected Delegate, is a proud member of AEA and SAG-eligible.

Storytelling through Song
"I believe that everyone already has what they need to be honest, successful, and effective in communicating and expressing themselves; whether it be on the Theatrical or Corporate Stage, or communicating in every day life with friends and loved ones.
You must be willing to dive deeper into yourself.
My joy in working with others and watching them soar has everything to do with finding the parts of their work they personally align with most--and the parts they feel most detached from... Tapping into those gifts, exploring them with specificity, and doing the emotional excavation and technical work needed to allow oneself to wholly drop into the specific text and circumstance. Lastly, and most importantly, realizing how these things present in each of our individual human vessels. Taking this care allows us to tap deeper into the Work.
Doing this work is a form of Self Discovery.
I am immensely passionate about the opportunity to remind and encourage my pupils to exist in their own bodies while finding the honesty, joy, and wonder in being able to play and create and communicate worlds.
To take words that were given to them, and make them completely their own.
We allow ourselves to exist truthfully."
