Kaelan Roberts, Arts High School Student

Kaelan Robert

Congratulations to Kaelan Roberts who has been cast as a lead in the Two River Theater production of “A Little Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night”. Kaelan aims to move on to AMDA with a major in Musical Theater upon his graduation in 2021.

Kaelan is a junior drama major at Arts High School. He has had a passion for theater since the early age of 14 when he saw the Broadway production of “Hamilton”. It was at that moment that he decided to pursue a career in the Performing Arts. He began training with acting coach Adam Roebuck and vocal coach Joanne Robertozzi in 2017. Throughout his time at Arts High School, he has developed his acting technique under the guidance of Carl Gonzalez and Elena Dones, Arts High School’s two drama instructors. His passion for the stage is not confined within the walls of Arts High School. Instead, he is consistently auditioning and working on performances independently. Some of his credits include:

  • Tanisha Fordham’s “Go Black Boy Fly” (Feature Film)
  • Adam Roebucks’ “After School Special” (Off Broadway)
  • A Little Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” (Two River Theater)
  • Mary Zimmerman’s “The Arabian Nights” (Arts High School)
  • Qui Nguyen’s “She Kills Monsters” (Arts High School)
  • “My Shot” (Newark Census 2020 Kickoff)
  • “Immigrants” (Newark Census 2020 Hispanic Heritage Celebration)
