Currently Keely teaches at the Yale School of Drama (MFA program), MIT, The Boston Conservatory and is a master voice teacher at Shakespeare & Co. She worked as an actor and teacher in NYC for 18 years, and acted with Shakespeare & Co. in Lenox, MA.
Keely can also be seen in re-runs of Law and Order as Judge Lillian Barone. Keely has a private practice working with actors, singers and professional speakers. She takes time from her other jobs to work with NEYT kids in the summers:
"Because most all of the young people in the summer Shakespeare camp return each year, they have begun to demonstrate an on-going and developing understanding of highly complex tools and personal awareness with material that I use when training professional actors."
