Star Trick: The Musical

“Ellen Kennedy tackles the dual roles of efficient Lieutenant IHearYa and sex-crazed Queen of the Popcorns … Kennedy’s torchy ‘Where No Man Has Gone Before’ is worth the price of admission.”
– Louise Phillips, The West End Times

A Phoenix Too Frequent

Phoenix Rises as Opulent Gem
“Ellen Kennedy’s funny Doto is just right.”
– Lloyd Dykk, Vancouver Sun

“Ellen Kennedy’s Doto is also strong. As the clear-eyed member of the servant class, Doto knows the truth when she sees it, and Kennedy spits out that truth with gleeful good humour.”
– Colin Thomas, The Georgia Straight

“…Ellen Kennedy steals the show as the perky Sister Mary Amnesia.”
