Kea Trevett

AEA, SAG-AFTRA

Kea is an actor, writer, and theater maker based in her hometown {and first love}, New York City. A proud member of Actor’s Equity and SAG-AFTRA, Kea is your offbeat leading lady of {mis}adventures both tragic and comic. Imagine Kristin Wiig and Maggie Gyllenhaal had a baby, and the baby really loves Shakespeare, binge watching Schitt’s Creek, and overnight hiking trips- which is to say, singing show tunes at dramatic vistas and making Banana Boats in the campfire (google it. you’re welcome). 

NY stage credits include Roundabout, Classic Stage Company, The Sheen Center, and The Barrow Group. Her Princess of France was “fluid and graceful” in Love’s Labor’s Lost at the Shakespeare Festival of St. Louis (dir. Tom Ridgely), and her Queen Elizabeth “hit emotional notes both comedic and deeply tragic" in Richard III: an all-female production (dir. NYTW Fellow Nana Dakin).  Other favorites include Joy, written and directed by Katie Cappiello (creator  of Netflix’s Grand Army), Antigone in the World (Africa Tour, dir. Greg Mosher), Little Rock (NYT Critic’s Pick!), and The Comedy of Errors (dir. Tyne Rafaeli). Kea has developed new work with The Lark, New Georges, Ars Nova, Ensemble Studio Theater, Cherry Lane, Theater Masters, Page 73, Irish Rep, HB Studios, Lincoln Center, Playhouse Creatures, Cloud City, and Guild Hall. 

Kea has worked on-camera in films, commercials, and TV. Credits include FX's Fosse/Verdon, Mordeo Season One, Milkwater, and over a dozen independent films, which have screened at festivals across the country and abroad. Coming to Terms premiered at LA Shorts Fest and is available for viewing here, and Girl Talk premiered at Outfest and is currently streaming (and trending!) on NoBudge.

Kea holds a BA in Theater and Creative Writing from NYU, an MFA in Acting from Columbia University, and has Improv training from Improvolution. When she’s not performing, Kea teaches middle and high schoolers the joys of Iambic Pentameter, World Theater, and Playwriting at TFANA (ask her about her Greta Thunberg/Hero’s Journey lesson plan). Kea is also a Story Pirate, Brooklyn dweller, aspirational home baker, and proud plant mom. Find her on instagram, imdb, facebook, or leave her a message. Kea is represented by Brantley Brown of Authentic Talent, and commercially by Michael Raymen of Buchwald.
