Reviews are in-

"Kaylee Killingsworth (Chandler) is a powerhouse both vocally and in on-stage charisma. If she was on stage, I had to force myself to ever take my eyes off of her. Her character was definitely the one to watch (and in future rewrites should be elevated even more), and Kaylee’s personality reinforced that. She is vocally adept and handles multiple belting sequences with strength and ease."

"Come see this show in its youth and catch a glimpse of its future. Then one day when it’s on the big stage, you can say you knew it when it was a sparkle in Kenady’s eyes."

The guinea pig iv

"Secular" by K.O. Killingsworth is a selection featured in The Guinea Pig IV short play festival (2019)

Kaylee Killingsworth is the voice of Chandler on the original cast recording of Beyond Perfection- a New Musical.

Written by Kenady Shope (Producer, Composer, Book Writer) and Emily Horton (Arranger, Composer)

About the story:

It is the year 2036 and the United States is no longer united. Starting in the year 2020, the two political parties were so extreme that a civil war began. In search of peace, they passed the Great Schism of 2028, through which each state became its own country. New York, the empire, has invented 2020 glasses, which allow its citizens to see only what they prefer, allowing all citizens to live in their own ideal virtual reality. Chandler comes to New York running from her past, while Aiden comes seeking a bright future. Yet they soon realize that the glasses are not helping them succeed. It is in the park, a deserted paradise where the glasses do not work, that Aiden and Chandler, and the rest of the rebels find exactly what they are looking for: love, community, a sense of purpose, and hope for the future. They had to be blind to truly see.

"Under Joe Messina's feeling direction, a stirring ensemble casts a powerful spell, with several wrenching performances." --- Nancy Churnin, Dallas Morning News

"Joe Messina’s direction brings out the authentic humanity of the characters, and he keeps the action well-paced with tightly synchronized movements from the ensemble." --- Carol St George, The Column DFW

Little Women

at the Firehouse Theater

"As one might expect, the young women who play the four March sisters steal the show. Kaylee Killingsworth plays the eldest March sister, Meg, with an unaffected graceful charm (she also gracefully hits soaring high notes)."
