Artistic Director: Julie Keely

BrickStreet Theatre has been under the Artistic Direction of Julie Keely since August 2017.  She has also been actively involved in the arts in North Iowa as a High School Speech Coach for 10+ years. An Iowa native, Julie received a degree in theatre from The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC.  Julie spent 6 years in New York chasing her dream and performing in stage productions.  Julie then moved to LA to try her hand at film.  She worked on several commercials, films and had a short run on Day's of Our Lives.   

After marrying her college sweetheart, Julie ended up back in Iowa with her husband and 2 children.


The arts are alive and well in the heartland.  The level of unbelievable talent in the area is so refreshing.  Every production is a product of hard work by so many people.  They help to make the shows look effortless.  It is my pleasure to help with this remarkable journey!
