Spinning Dot Theatre is excited to collaborate with local, national and international artists in the development of new work for young audiences.  In 2014, we will begin our Spinning Dot Theatre Artist in Residence Program.

We are very happy to announce our first Artist in Residence will be Kelly Joyce Fielder!

Kelly Fielder was raised in Alpena, MI, but is proud to comfortably call Ann Arbor her home. She is a graduate of Eastern Michigan University with a degree in Theatre Arts. It was there that she started her work in theatre for young audiences and developed her love of puppetry. She is glad to have found theatre as an outlet for her musicianship, having written and performed music for three of the children’s tours at EMU and various work with the Ann Arbor Young Actors Guild. Kelly also has background in the visual arts that includes drawing, body art, watercolors, and work in fibers. Kelly is proud and excited to part of Spinning Dot’s premiere season and looks forward to what the future holds for the company.


Kelly is a CREATIVE JOY and her innovative artistry is so inspiring!  I just loving seeing what she comes up with when we work together!
