EXTRA EXTRA – The 2017 Kelsey Awards – Complete List of Nominees


Mike Almstedt is one of the hardest workers Kelsey Theatre has seen. No matter which production he is working on, day-in and day-out, he works hard to make sure his shows (and other company’s shows) have exactly what is needed.

This year, he’s nominated for his work in “Boeing Boeing”.

How do you like working at The Kelsey Theatre?

MIKE: Love……..Love…….Love It!!

What is your favorite Kelsey Theatre memory?

MIKE: When M&M formed as a company, and we produced “Love Letters” on Valentine’s Day.

What is your most embarrassing moment on or off stage that’s theater-related?

MIKE: As a set designer, I always pray that everything works properly. Then all of a sudden, a door opens, but no one is there!

If there’s one person at The Kelsey Theatre you’ve been wanting to work with, but never had the opportunity, who is it and why?

MIKE: I really couldn’t say. I’ve worked with probably most of the folks, in one capacity or another.

What is your dream show that you’d like to work on?

MIKE: “42nd St.” always ranked as one of my top shows. We are currently on stage with the production. Mike D. And I have been raising the bar with each show we do, wether a musical or play. It’s going to be tough to top this one. The entire production team, cast and crew have been the BEST!

Are you excited for The Kelsey Awards on Saturday, August 19th?!

MIKE: Always!
